The Effect of Parental Divorce on the Psychological Wellbeing of Muslim Youth: Implications for Counseling and Psychotherapy
This research deals with the experiences and perceptions of Muslim children and adolescents of divorced parents. The study, therefore, focuses on Muslim adolescents who went through the emotional trauma and impact of their parents’ divorce but who have managed to let go of their negative reactions and to learn from the whole experience. Because the participants in this study are Muslims, another aspect that this research has looked into is the extent to which their faith, Islam, acted as a spiritual comfort.
Penyelidikan ini mengkaji pengalaman dan persepsi kanak-kanak dan remaja berugama Islam tentang ibu bapa mereka yang bercerai. Oleh itu, ia memberi tumpuan kepada remaja Islam yang pernah melalui trauma emosi dan kesan daripada perceraian ibu bapa mereka tetapi berjaya membebaskan diri daripada reaksi negatif dan mengambil iktibar daripada segala yang mereka alami. Oleh kerana subjek penyelidikan ini berugama Islam, maka satu lagi aspek yang dikaji adalah sejauh manakah agama mereka dapat memberi ketenangan kerohanian.
