A Personal Invitation from Dr. Frank Anderson

Over the past 30 years, I've had the opportunity to work alongside the field's premier trauma innovators, including Bessel van der Kolk and Richard Schwartz, as we developed treatment methods that offer truly transformative results.

During that time, nothing I've experienced has been as effective as Internal Family Systems to offer profound healing for complex and dissociative trauma.

I've spent my career honing IFS therapy to help thousands of clinicians like you overcome some of the most challenging trauma cases imaginable.

Now I invite you to join me in this intensive program that brings together everything I've learned in effective trauma treatment.

There's never been a program that's so intentionally designed to equip you with IFS therapy techniques that you can use right away with your trauma cases.

When you register today for this four-month program, you'll get access to step-by-step learning modules that include live demonstrations and experiential learning sessions, so you'll know exactly what to do in your next client session.

Plus, you'll be able to join me for exclusive, live consultation calls where you can practice your skills and get questions answered directly by me.

I can't wait for you to join me in this practice-transforming program. I'll see you in the course.

Warmly,
Frank Anderson, MD
