In the Arab world a democratic spring moves the masses, in search for greater social justice, probably driven by an original archetype. The Arabs are a transnational entity, united by language and by the adherence to the Islam, which is closely interwoven with their lives. Arabs consider psychology a Western invention, not suitable for a proper Islamic way of life. On the other hand, mental health professionals are formed in the West. There is a gap between psychological models and procedures for the Western and Muslim world. Elements that should be taken into account when treating patients Arab-Muslims, following Jung’s recommendation to use religion as a mean of patient care.
Keywords: Islam, Arabs, democracy, religious-cultural psychotherapy, Bedouins, archetype
