Abstract

The article presents a vertical and horizontal integrated embedded curriculum model of Islamic psychology through a descriptive and theoretical study conceptualized by al-Faruqi’s and Berghout’s conceptual framework in the Islamization of knowledge. The article demonstrates how an amalgam of this framework offers useful resources in the development of undergraduate or post-graduate courses in Islamic psychology. With the proliferation of Islamic psychology and psychotherapy courses on a global scale, this article will provide a stimulus to the further examination and development of conceptual and curriculum models based on the tawḥīd paradigm in the Islamization of psychology.
