This workshop will provide an in-depth overview of Internal Family Systems (IFS) theory and therapy. IFS is an evidence-based model that provides a compassionate, respectful, non-pathologizing approach to understanding the organization and functioning of the human psyche. It provides therapists with a powerful and effective set of tools for empowering clients with a wide range of clinical profiles to heal the wounded and burdened parts of their internal systems, resulting in increased internal harmony, symptom reduction, and improved functioning. Participants will gain familiarity with IFS theory and with IFS techniques that can be put to use immediately in their own lives and in their work with clients.
