Program Details

For psychotherapists, coaches, and pastoral counselors.

Are you looking for a dynamic way to bring aliveness to your work with couples? Intimacy from the Inside Out is a couples therapy model, drawn from Internal Family Systems (IFS) psychotherapy, that integrates aspects of psychodynamic theory, systems thinking, and neuroscience. It uses the intimate relationship as a vehicle for growth and transformation of the individual as well as the couple, helping people make sense of their life experience in a safe and collaborative way.

In this training, you

  • Learn an effective method of relationship work
  • Increase your confidence in working with couples
  • Better understand the challenges of systemic work

This powerful model of couples therapy helps your clients understand anger, emotional pain, and the needs that lie beneath contentious patterns of relating; communicate more skillfully; and access their capacity for openhearted connection.

Recommended reading Martha Sweezy, Ellen L. Ziskind, and Richard C. Schwartz, IFS Internal Family Systems Therapy: New Dimensions (Routledge).
