Brief Description of Work:

Gulamabbas is undertaking research and teaches Psychology of Religion and Neuroscience of Religious Experience at the University of Oxford. His doctorate focusses on how Islamic concepts and practices can be harnessed to improve accessibility and adherence to treatments for depression in the UK Muslim community, with specific regard to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and mindfulness-based approaches. His previous research includes neuro imaging of an Islamic mindfulness (dhikr) practice; Islamic psychological teachings for anxiety and depression; and Arabic commentaries of some of the earliest Muslim prayer manuals that are rich in values-based psychology.
