Reviews

"Probably the only resource available that focuses on the actual practice of psychology in this part of the world; a must for any professional, local or expatriate, who wishes to set up a practice in the UAE or GCC region. Enjoyable and informative reading."- Hussain Ali Maseeh, President, Emirates Psychological Association, UAE

"This is a remarkable and skillfully written book. Every one of the well-versed chapters gives us the opportunity to explore and better understand the educational, ethical and multicultural challenges and dilemmas often found in psychology in the UAE and Middle East region as a whole. I enthusiastically applaud the initiative, talent and collaborative effort of the authors who are contributing to the expansion and awareness of the field of psychology within the Arab culture." - Joanne Hands, President, Middle East Psychological Association, Kuwait
