On Self Led Problem Solving
This past week I have been thinking a lot about problem solving. As one of the leaders at the Institute, I hear frequently from a wide range of stakeholders on issues important to them and then working with our team and others to figure out how to solve them. Important issues such as;
· How do we grow the number of programs offered while maintaining the integrity of the teaching?
· What additional offerings do we want to provide, in what order and to whom?
· How do we expand the accessibility of our offerings?
Black Therapists Rock and IFS – A Growing Partnership
IFS Institute and Black Therapists Rock (BTR) have created a partnership that is helping to spread the IFS model to under-represented communities, and more specifically, Black communities across the United States.
Resources in Times of War
As the Russian-Ukrainian war continues, we are reaching out to let you know that the IFS Institute and the Foundation for Self Leadership, along with the rest of the IFS community, stand firmly with you, the people of Ukraine. We extend our support and love to the Ukrainians who face attacks, uncertainty, and the sudden loss of homes and loved ones. What we have been observing violates our core values of humanity, harmony, and love.
**Update 3/23/22. Thanks to all those who expressed an interest in these role! We're no longer accepting applications at this time.
We're excited to be expanding the IFS Institute team! We are looking to immediately add a Director of Talent Management and Director of Operations. We will also be adding a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Specialist in the near future.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As we sat down to write this note to the IFS community about our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) efforts, we recognized that while we have launched important projects and made progress, we also wanted to take a step back and create a statement of commitment. We wanted to be specific about our goals going forward, focus our efforts and be transparent and accountable to the community.

In Memory of Rich Simon
I’m writing to speak for my grieving parts about a terrible loss for myself and for the field of psychotherapy. Rich Simon, the editor or the Psychotherapy Networker, died last week. Some of you will know him as the wild showman who hosted the Networker’s annual conference and was the star of the opening musical extravaganza each year. You can get a sense of his professional contribution from these loving tributes:
