Your Lord Has Not Forsaken You
Trauma is more common than you think. Well over half of your friends, colleagues, and closest family members have experienced harrowing events in their lives. Maybe you have, too. Trauma can dwell in the body for years or even decades, unrecognized but draining your energy, happiness, and your faith. But through all the numbness or pain you may feel, and all the hardships you experience, Allah is still there for you.
This book is a guide to understanding trauma and its far-reaching effects on the body, mind, and soul. With that understanding in place, we can recognize how it leads to cognitive biases and doubts around faith—and then begin to grow beyond these roadblocks and find contentment.
What’s in the book:
An in-depth examination of the Duha Approach and how it provides a framework for Islamic psychology today.
A coping skills library with clinically proven exercises that can help alleviate daily mental health struggles.
Case studies to illustrate how cognitive distortions show up in real-life situations and how to overcome them.
