Providing certification to improve qualification and establish high standards of practice
The International Association of Islamic Psychology is the premiere organization responsible for regulating standards in theoretical orientation and best practice in the field of Islamic Psychology throughout the world. Our certification process is based on these standards that have come out of a consensus among scholars, thinkers and clinicians who are leaders in the field with the intention of setting an appropriately high bar that honors both the Islamic tradition and professional psychology ethics.
Certification for Educational Institutions
Accredited educational institutions looking to offer courses or degrees in Islamic Psychology can attain IAIP certification for new or existing programs. We offer a well-rounded curriculum and integrated texts that can be tailored to the needs and requirements of each institution. Whether it be a university looking to offer a graduate degree or a smaller institution looking to offer a certificate, IAIP will work closely with partners to design the program, consult on implementation and recommend IAIP certified instructors. Contact us for inquiries.
Certification for Individual Professionals
Practicing professionals and students of Islamic Psychology looking to obtain credentials in the field can receive IAIP certification in one of two different ways. After having completed training in one of our IAIP certified programs and undergoing a clinical practicum with supervision, trainees will receive individual clinical certification from IAIP. Practitioners with a long-standing history in the field of Islamic Psychology can apply for retroactive certification through an IAIP approved audit of their knowledge and practice. See below for the application link.
