The demand for IFS Institute training programs is growing and the Institute is focused on delivering programs  to help professionals grow and develop. We are excited to introduce a new Level 2 intensive training program entitled, An IFS Approach to Working with Children and Adolescents”.  IFS Senior Trainer Pam Krause (MSW, LCSW) and Subject Matter Expert Carmen Jiminez-Pride, (LCSW, Registered Play Therapist), developed the program curriculum together, and are eagerly looking forward to sharing their expertise with participants.

This Level 2 program, which will launch in July, is already full. However, there is more to come. We are working with Pam and Carmen to schedule more programs in the future.
