The IFS model offers an evidence-based, empowering and non-pathologizing paradigm for understanding and transforming our personal inner worlds. It also brings to therapists a sense of awe and adventure as they accompany clients on their inner journeys. IFS offers therapists and healers a way to make their practice more enjoyable, effective, and less of a struggle.

For clients, the healing and reorienting of their “inner families” in an environment of genuine acceptance translates into concrete behavioral change, as well as improved ability to relate well to people. IFS is a gentle, yet powerful, healing delivery system that releases the therapist from the need to be clever because it trusts and empowers the clients’ Self.

This workshop introduces the basic principles and techniques of IFS and illustrates them with experiential exercises and video illustrations. Participants walk away with new perspectives and methods for themselves and even their most difficult clients.
