Mar 24, 2020 | CME 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Hagerstown, Maryland
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment for Healing PTSD, Anxiety, Depression and More is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 24, 2020 at Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Hagerstown, Hagerstown, Maryland, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ / 6.25 continuing education hours. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Addiction Counselors • Marriage and Family Therapists • Therapists • Other Professionals Who Work within the Mental Health Fields. Course Description: Internal Family Systems offers unique, clarifying, and empowering methods for addressing these common clinical concerns. Some models of psychotherapy regard having multiple internal “parts” as pathological. NOT in IFS. IFS views the multiplicity of the mind as normal. Every part has a positive intention and every part has value. All clients can heal. IFS aligns the therapist with the innate wisdom of the client. IFS cultivates compassion. IFS is a powerful treatment modality. Once you experience it you will want to incorporate it into your practice. In developing IFS 30 years ago, creator Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., realized that clients were describing experiences with various conflicting roles and extreme behaviors within themselves. He noticed that when parts felt heard and safe and had their concerns addressed, clients became calm and less reactive. They could begin to make different and better decisions. IFS therapy helps clients to find safe ways to connect to early childhood emotions, to transform negative beliefs, to feel grounded in their true self, and to achieve lasting change in their lives. IFS has established a legacy of effectiveness in successfully treating many mental health issues and is being heralded as the treatment that all clinicians should know in order to treat clients more effectively (van der Kolk 2015). Objectives: • Investigate Internal Family Systems (IFS) concepts, steps and techniques to broaden treatment intervention options. • Appraise how IFS brings a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders by translating common comorbidities into parts language. • Analyze the IFS view that client's symptoms and psychopathology are attempts to solve an emotional problem. • Inspect a clinical session to deepen one’s understanding of IFS treatment strategies. • Practice clinical interventions to enhance effectiveness in sessions. • Appraise the benefits of applying IFS to one’s current clinical practice.
