About the Workshop:
Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is a systems-focused, non-pathologizing approach to psychotherapy. IFS encourages us to approach our internal worlds and the inner worlds of others with qualities such as curiosity, compassion, connectedness, clarity, courage, calmness, confidence, and creativity.

IFS asserts that we are all made up of parts, subpersonalities that assume specific roles based on our experiences. IFS allows us to release our parts from internal constraints and cultivate internal harmony.

This workshop will help participants conceptualize and work with cases from an Internal Family Systems perspective, using the 6 Fs to allow clients to connect with their 8 Cs of Self. There will be both didactic and experiential portions of this workshop to help attendees inform their work with IFS principles. No previous IFS knowledge is required.

Learning Objectives:
a) Describe one of the 6 Fs
b) Explain the different between a part and Self
c) Explain one way a therapist’s parts show up in therapy
d) Integrate basic IFS principles into client case conceptualization

* Please note that this workshop will include both didactic and experiential learning components. The experiential learning structures include sociometry, demonstrations of a sociodrama, and other experiential processes which often include (optional) personal disclosures from participants. While personal growth is often a byproduct of experiential learning in psychodrama, the primary purpose of this workshop is training. If you are seeking a workshop for personal growth or seeking a professional training event that is entirely didactic (lecture/powerpoint), this is probably not the best workshop for you.

No conflicts of interest or outside commercial support have been declared by the presenter or others involved in the program.

This workshop is designed primarily for psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, and graduate students, but other professionals may also find it helpful. The instruction is designed at the introductory level (although many advanced professionals may also find it helpful).
