Join IFS founder Dr. Richard Schwartz, to learn the transformative therapy model that offers breakthrough healing of trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, and more.

In this program, you’ll discover the power of IFS through lecture and discussion, real-life videos and case examples, and experiential exercises.

You’ll emerge from the program understanding the basic theory and principles of IFS therapy and be able to

  • Identify the effects of trauma on parts and Self
  • Access your client’s Self—a core of compassion and other leadership qualities
  • Manage client “resistance” more effectively
  • Teach your clients awareness of their own parts and how these parts impact therapy
  • Help clients release personal burdens related to traumatic experiences.

Come explore how trauma can be addressed by creating space for compassion and curiosity, with the evidence-based psychotherapy of Internal Family Systems.
