Level 1 IFS Trainings in US and Canada

We are currently organizing IFS Level 1 trainings for 2022, and will post them on this website as soon as they're available to receive applications. For the time being, we're organizing online trainings, and will send an email to the Online Level 1 Interest list when a training becomes available. We invite you to add your name to that list ( https://share.hsforms.com/1tJRcqaxvS4uHN7mz0JmQLw45070 ). We have also organized a hybrid training (656) as a pilot that will have both online and in-person sessions, and more information about that training is available below.

Due to the popularity of IFS trainings, we use a lottery to determine who can apply. Both applicants and training wait list are determined by the application lottery. Please see each new training’s webpage for details.

Mastering the Skills of IFS

Level 1 trainings are comprehensive 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. Please see each training's website brochure for details.

To apply for a training program and view its brochure, please scroll down and click the training program location that interests you.

If you are unable to participate in one of the Level 1s already scheduled, we invite you to add your name to an Interest List for a prospective training. IFS Institute will email people on Interest Lists should a training be scheduled in their area. Please note that being on an Interest List does not obligate you to apply to or enroll in a training, and you may add your name to multiple Interest Lists.
