An Introduction to Internal Family Systems (July 2017)


The Internal Family Systems (IFS) Model has evolved over the past twenty years into a comprehensive approach for working with individuals, couples, and families. IFS represents a synthesis of two already-existing paradigms: systems thinking and the multiplicity of the mind. This powerful, strength-based model of therapy applies concepts and methods from structural, strategic, narrative, and Bowenian schools of family therapy to the internal world of an individual. This workshop will introduce the model and provide the basic skills necessary to begin integrating it into clinical practice. The workshop includes videotape of clinical work, live IFS demonstrations, and experiential exercises to facilitate learning. CECHs: 12.0
