Description

Anxiety, depression, trauma, bullying, school avoidance, self-harm, and violence. These are all signs that your students’ nervous systems are in survival mode leaving them distracted, disrespectful, angry and afraid. Their minds are not “online” for effective learning and their hearts are not available to connect and collaborate with others.

You’re working harder than ever, but when nothing you try seems to reach the kids who need you most, you feel increasingly frustrated, burnt out, overwhelmed, and hopeless. You need a new way to reach today’s kids who face so many troubles and the complicated emotions that come with them.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is one of the most popular, new, and effective evidence-based approaches inspired by current brain science and cutting-edge psychological constructs. Ultimately, applying the power of IFS into your classrooms will transform your school from the inside out!

Whether you’re a classroom teacher, special education teacher, school social worker, psychologist, or specialist, this training will clearly and easily give you a new approach to:

  • Confidently and effectively manage extreme emotions and behaviors in the classroom
  • Connect with and inspire all students – even the ones for whom nothing seems to work
  • Relieve your stress and burnout more effectively!
  • Create a cultural shift toward emotional empowerment and understanding in your school
  • Reinvigorate your professional work and change lives!

If you only purchase one professional development program this year make it this one! Give your students (and yourself) the gift of greater success in the classroom and a brighter future!


Course Content Disclosure: Course content will focus exclusively on the Internal Family Systems approach.

Outline

What is Internal Family Systems (IFS)?

If you’ve ever seen Disney Pixar’s film, Inside Out, you’ve got a head start on the IFS approach! In the movie, what Inside Out calls emotions (Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness), IFS calls parts. Each part of you has positive intentions, but sometimes they can be easily highjacked by other people’s behavior. This program will show you how to weave these concepts into your life to better show up for your students and reduce your stress levels.

Apply IFS in Schools

Core Concepts of IFS & Evolution of the School Model

  • Current state of students, educators and schools
  • Student’s need for connection to self and to others
  • Your vision for students & how IFS can help
  • IFS Model & core concepts created by Richard Schwartz, PhD
  • Development of parts, their positive intent and core needs
  • Possibility for everyone to access their optional capacity to function & operate as best self

Apply IFS to You

Showing Up as Your BEST SELF for Students

  • Understand our parts – different sides of us manifesting as emotions, perspectives, responses, etc.

  • What to do when your buttons are pushed

  • Techniques on how to respond to upset students
  • Understand protective response strategies to stress in students (extreme parts of us)
  • Practices to access and operate with greater self-leadership
  • Practical solutions to show up as your best self
  • Reflective practice for personal awareness, self-care and understanding

Apply IFS to Students

Transform Disruptive, Angry, Disrespectful, and Distracted Behaviors

  • Application of model in acute/crisis moments as response tool
  • Implications for student behavior and learning capacity
  • The effect of trauma and devaluing experiences to create extreme reactions
  • How different parts/sides of us manifest as “bad”, disruptive/challenging behaviors in school
  • Increase cooperation with teachers and their classmates

Practice:
