Level 1 IFS Trainings in US and Canada

We are currently organizing more IFS Level 1 trainings for 2022, including online trainings, and hybrid trainings that have a combination of online-only sessions and onsite-only sessions. Trainings are posted on this webpage when they are available to receive applications.

At this time, there is greater demand for IFS trainings than supply, and we are working every day to provide more trainings for you. In the meantime, we are using an application lottery to determine who may apply, and you can sign up for a particular training's lottery when the training is posted on the website.

If you would like to receive an email when trainings are posted, please sign-up for email notifications here https://ifs-institute.com/trainings/email-notifications

Honing the Skills of IFS

Level 1 trainings are comprehensive, professional training programs in which participants develop an understanding of the conceptual basis of IFS and learn how to apply IFS techniques to various clinical populations. Participants are also invited to explore their own inner worlds within a training's safe, nurturing context. A select group of IFS trainers teaches Level 1s using a format that features lectures, experiential exercises, video review, large and small group discussions, and small group practice sessions.

For more information, please see each training's individual webpage and the informational brochure linked to it.
