Course Description:
As a young therapist, I often struggled to get results. I avoided my client’s internal emotions and instead tried to control the difficult symptoms I was seeing – which led to heated arguments and frustration rather than progress.

When I started listening closely to my clients, I finally discovered the answer to healing and transformation …

As clients would talk about their different parts (and how the parts felt pain and emotions), I realized that was the key – we have to free each part from the trauma, abuse, attachment injuries and suffering that they feel.

Since I began developing Internal Family Systems (IFS) 30 years ago, it has been scientifically tested to be effective at helping a wide variety of mental health conditions – such as trauma, addiction, anxiety and depression – which is why it is one of the fastest growing approaches in therapy.

Hailed by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, IFS will transform your clients’ lives as they learn to heal themselves. No more therapist directives or insights, rather IFS will provide a connection with your client that creates lasting healing.

Please join me for this rare 2-day training – I want to give you the skills you need to use IFS, so you can improve what you’re doing in the therapy room – and see transformation in your clients’ lives.

Richard Schwartz, PhD

• Summarize Internal Family Systems (IFS) steps, concepts and techniques to inform the clinician’s choice of treatment interventions.
• Develop a deep understanding of how neuroscience informs therapeutic decisions in IFS therapy.
• Identify, specify and clarify the protective parts of clients who have a history of trauma to help with assessment and treatment planning.
• Articulate the IFS belief that all parts want something positive for the client and how the parts will use a variety of strategies to gain influence within the internal system.
• Compile an alternate view of client symptoms and psychopathology, showing how client’s parts are trying to protect them from emotional and psychological pain for purposes of client psychoeducation.
• Demonstrate how IFS translates common comorbidities into parts language, showing a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders as it relates to clinical treatment.
• List three protocols of IFS and how to apply them when working with clients who have complex developmental trauma.
• Explain the three categories of sub personalities that clients most often present in therapy.
• Identify and describe the qualities of self to improve client engagement.
