Internal Family Systems (IFS) is one of the fastest growing and most innovative approaches to psychotherapy. IFS offers a way to understand and work with clients that helps them quickly access their Self—a core of valuable leadership qualities, such as compassion, to face life challenges—and harmonize their internal family of “parts,” or sub-personalities.
In this workshop—focusing on IFS’s approach to treating trauma—we will be introduced to the basic theory and principles of IFS therapy, and learn how to:
- Help clients access their “Self”
- Deal with client resistance, transference, and counter transference more effectively
- Repair attachment injuries from past relationships
- Identify the effects of trauma and utilize the IFS model in treating trauma
- Gain an awareness of our own sub-personalities and how they impact our therapeutic work
