Level 1 IFS Trainings in US and Canada

We are organizing more IFS Level 1 trainings, 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 (a drop-down from the Trainings tab). Thanks!

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.

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 in another location. 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.
