Educational Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants:
  • Discuss brand new video examples of Dr. Rothman’s work, illustrating the use of pure IFS techniques to befriend and help parts that experience and strategically utilize adaptive survival states in the nervous system.
  • Illustrate how IFS techniques can facilitate clients’ ability to regulate their emotional and physiological states in and between sessions through the process of “Internal Co-Regulation.”
  • Explain the IFS position on traditional grounding and emotion regulation techniques and the importance of compassionate messaging to parts when using such techniques.
  • Utilize Ruth Culver’s Survive-Thrive Spiral in IFS work with clients who experience frequent dysregulation.
  • Distinguish between empathy and compassion through an IFS lens, and their relevance to the integration of IFS and PVT.
  • Identify client-level and therapist-level considerations for adjusting the empathy-to-compassion ratio in commonly encountered therapeutic situations.

Workshop Description:

Based on popular demand, Dr. Rothman is excited to provide a continued exploration of the integration of Dr. Richard Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy and Dr. Stephen Porges’s Polyvagal Theory (PVT). This workshop is designed as a follow-up to Dr. Rothman’s IFS and PVT integration course.

Concepts to be explored include:

  1. The “Therapeutic Dose of Empathy” in IFS sessions
  2. The power of “Internal Co-Regulation” for in-the-moment regulation and healing and long-term retuning of the autonomic nervous system
  3. The importance of communicating compassionately with parts when using emotion-regulation techniques
  4. An exploration of Ruth Culver’s Survive-Thrive spiral as a helpful tool in therapy with clients who experience frequent dysregulation.

Please join us for this powerful workshop where Dr. Rothman has done it again!
