Description

Most therapeutic models with set agendas do not work with children, especially when they are not ready to tell their story because of behavioral challenges, trauma, anxiety, and depression.

In this unique integrative training, practice creative and playful approaches to successfully engage children, move at their own pace and help them overcome their challenges.

You’ll be given an all-new process to follow so you can:

  • Integrate IFS in your work with child and adolescent clients
  • Help your young clients identify and befriend their parts.
  • Use fun and engaging activities to reduce difficulties met in their young lives!

IFS is a non-directive, and non-pathologizing model that can be effectively applied to working with children of all ages. Whether incorporating in non-directive play therapy with younger children or engaging activities with older children, utilizing IFS techniques is easily adapted to therapy with children.
