The IFS Teacher Manual:

A Training Handbook for Using Internal Family Systems to Improve Teacher Effectiveness and Student Success

Many students today have emotional, behavioral, social and learning barriers that get in the way of school and life success. Teachers today often feel overworked and overstressed. IFS to the rescue. IFS is an amazing tool for helping students succeed and teachers to be more effective. The IFS Teacher and IFS Parent Manuals are complementary tools for guiding teachers and parents in the use of IFS with their students and children. Dr. Richard Schwartz states: “I am thrilled by the way that Rodger Goddard has translated the principles and techniques of the Internal Family Systems model (IFS) of psychotherapy into these wonderful manuals. It has been a dream of mine that someone would bring my life’s work to education. I knew that if children learned this new loving and healing way of understanding and relating to themselves, their lives would be much better. Similarly, if teachers knew practical ways to maintain an open-hearted, excited presence when they taught, their classrooms would be enticing learning environments and they wouldn’t burn out. Now Rodger and other colleagues are making that dream come true. His manuals are highly user-friendly — full of clear, simple language and lovely illustrations, all professionally organized. They also offer experiential exercises that bring the work to life and allow users to integrate the practice into their daily interactions with the world. I feel honored that someone with his background and success undertook this project of bringing this empowering, practical paradigm to teachers and children and that he has done such an amazing job.”
