2009-01-01 00:00:00
The objectives of this presentation are:
  • To provide concise background information about Islam for the non Muslim audience.
  • To reflect on the ways in which Islamic beliefs can prevent suicide.
  • To suggest cross-cultural counseling for the bereaved family that is sensitive to the client’s frame of reference.

In conclusion, Islamic beliefs and spirituality have a profound impact on suicide prevention. However, if suicide takes place, along with the usual bereavement therapy, families need extra sensitive empathy consistent with their cultural and religious beliefs.
