For everyone wanting to learn more about the IFS model, therapists and non-therapists alike.
All the world’s religions teach that there is an untarnished essence within each of us, a Self from which wisdom, healing, and spiritual energy flow. We rarely experience this Self directly because it is obscured by self-protective psychological mechanisms, or lost in the fear, pain, and shame of past trauma.
The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model provides a way to help you access the Self and bring its natural compassion and confidence into daily life. People who have used IFS report profound shifts in the feelings and beliefs that previously constrained them. IFS introduces you to a detailed map of your psyche, including all parts or subpersonalities and their inner conflicts. The Self then forms healing relationships with each of them.
Open to therapists, non-therapists, and seasoned IFS practitioners who want to deepen their skills or do more personal work, this program offers the opportunity for transformative inner exploration and learning.
