Overview:

Most modes of psychotherapy believe to have “parts” is pathological. NOT in Internal Family Systems (IFS). In IFS, the idea of multiplicity of the mind is normal. Every part has a good intention, and every part has value. Even for trauma survivors. 

In the treatment of trauma, IFS differs from traditional phase-oriented treatments. Instead of starting with building resources in clients before processing traumatic memories, it welcomes extreme symptoms from the onset, learns about their positive protective intentions and gets their permission to access the traumatic wounds. 

IFS is the treatment method that all clinicians should know. Nearly all clients with a trauma history have innate abilities that help them improve their mental health if they listen to their parts. IFS does just that. IFS is an evidence-based approach for clinicians working with traumatized clients. Once you see it in action, you’ll want to incorporate it into your practice. Clients will leave your office with skills to use outside the therapy room to help them master their emotions. 

In this experiential presentation, Frank Anderson, MD will show video demonstrations and include exercises and meditation techniques to use with your clients.

Course Objectives:

  • Present the IFS Model and design ways to integrate IFS into your clinical practice. 
  • Specify and work with your client’s parts as defined by developer Richard Schwartz, PhD. 
  • Model how to work with clinician’s own parts. 
  • Critique an alternate view of symptoms and psychopathology, reasoning that these are ways your clients are trying to protect themselves from emotional pain and psychological wounding. 
  • Communicate how IFS increases the therapist’s curious and compassionate self when working with difficult and challenging clients. 
  • Evaluate the neuroscience behind the healing process in IFS therapy

Course materials are only available to enrolled students.
