Description

After decades of clinical innovation and recent scientific research, the empirically validated Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been shown to be effective at improving clients’ general functioning and well-being. This effective model provides clinicians with procedures for helping clients with the most challenging mental health profiles to heal the wounded, burdened, and traumatized parts of their systems.

The IFS model provides a compassionate, respectful, non-pathologizing approach to understanding the organization and functioning of the human psyche.

The transformative IFS approach embraces and celebrates the natural multiplicity of the mind. Its assumption that every part of the system has good intention and valuable resources allows clinicians to approach even the most troubling of “symptoms” with compassion and respect. IFS offers therapists 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:

  • a way to enter clients’ inner ecology without the overemphasis on containment and stabilization
  • symptom reduction and improved functioning for clients
  • deep self-healing within even the most troubled clients

IFS is a powerful treatment modality. Once you experience it, you will want to incorporate it into your practice.

Through instruction, video demonstration, and experiential exercises, Alexia D. Rothman, Ph.D., Certified IFS therapist and colleague of Dr. Richard Schwartz (founder of IFS) will show you step-by-step how to apply the most effective, empirically validated IFS interventions to help your clients connect with and understand their conflicting parts to facilitate deep, lasting healing.

Evolution of the Model
  • Development of the IFS model by Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D.

Composition of the Psyche
  • Concept of multiplicity: “We are all multiple personalities.”
  • Components of the psyche:
    • Wounded, vulnerable, parts
    • Protective parts: proactive and reactive
    • Burdens: Negative beliefs about oneself
    • The Self: compassionate inner leader and internal source of wisdom and healing energy
  • Guide clients to access their own inner wisdom and healing potential
  • IFS-specific techniques for in-the-moment emotion regulation, helpful even with panic, flashbacks, and dissociation
The IFS Model
