Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a study that seeks to extend the research question of how the integration of religion impacts the counseling process in a Muslim context by exploring the impact of the explicit integration of Islam into counseling on Jordanian university students perceptions of counselor social influence variables: social attractiveness, expertness, and trustworthiness. The study explores these related research issues in a non-western, Muslim cultural context. An application of these results is explored in the context of the Rosenbaums Repulsion Hypothesis in Interpersonal Relationship Development Theory. The study uses a single item measure of Islamic religiosity. The study was successful in preliminarily answering the question of how a sample of Muslim college students perceive a counselor who does or does not include religion in counseling, but the broader question of the impact of this inclusion on clinical outcomes is left unanswered.

Keywords: counseling; Interpersonal RelationshipDevelopment theory (IRDT); Islam; Muslim college students; Rosenbaums Repulsion Hypothesis; Shiite Muslim psychological community
