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.

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

Embracing the transformative IFS therapy approach 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. It 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

Once you experience this powerful modality, you will want to incorporate it into your practice.

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