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.

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.
