As APSS, we certainly do not intend to establish an Islamic or religious psychology. However, we must emphasize here that there are working groups outside the APSS on the globe, who strive for the latter and also do important research.

The APSS analyzes in its conceptual work religious and spiritual sources of oriental history, especially sufism, Thus for the moment predominantly Islamic sources to develop universally applicable psychological theories, concepts and therapeutic strategies.

One of our goals is the future inclusion of the analysis of Christian or Jewish concepts and a profound cooperation and conceptual work.

We regard the scriptures as a source of inspiration for the elaboration of theoretical concepts and hypotheses, by which we not only mean the Kuran, but also the Thora and Bible, also, the interpretations of various scholars in history and their over the centuries developed strategies for the treatment of mental illness.
