Description

IFS therapy is the clinical approach everyone is talking about...and for good reason.

Widely acclaimed by leading voices in the field and thousands of clinicians who have already integrated it into their practice, IFS therapy is one of the most innovative and effective approaches to psychotherapy available today.

By recognizing that individuals are made up of multiple parts, each with their own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, IFS therapy transforms your practice and allows you to work with clients on a much-deeper level…

…so you can help them connect with and heal parts of themselves that were previously inaccessible.

And now in this training, you’ll discover how IFS therapy can provide you a unique framework for working with your clients’ many parts so you can help them heal past traumas, reduce symptoms of anxiety, and navigate their biggest losses.

You’ll watch Certified IFS Therapist and Approved IFS Clinical Consultant Daphne Fatter, PhD. Dr. Fatter completed her postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Psychology under the direct supervision of world-renowned trauma expert Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and has been using IFS to achieve incredible results with clients for over a decade.

Full of specific skills, knowledge, techniques and insight building case studies, Dr. Fatter will empower you to:

  • Use simple steps and guided exercises to get started with IFS in your practice
  • Work with anxious parts in the IFS framework to reduce their intensity
  • Provide clients a sense of inner stability through the grieving process
  • Release emotional and physical trauma stored in the body with IFS techniques
  • Integrate IFS with EMDR, CBT and other treatment modalities you already use
  • And much more!

This is your chance to enhance your skills as a therapist and join the thousands of therapists who’ve already discovered the transformative power of IFS therapy.
