Develop a road map for dealing with your most challenging clients based on the IFS Model of Therapy.
Your Parts, Their Parts: What Successful IFS Therapists Need to Know (Frank Anderson)
Frank provides an overview of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) Model of Therapy, focusing on gaining competency in working with protective parts of the client, as well as being able to identify and work with the parts of yourself that can get activated when working with your most challenging clients.
Together, we will review the healing process according to the IFS model of therapy and discuss the spiritual dimensions of healing. Throughout the week, we will use meditations, experiential exercises, and practice groups.
Each therapist will gain an understanding of the basic principles of IFS with an awareness and strategy for dealing with the parts of themselves that get activated. You will also walk away with a road map of how to be with your client’s most challenging symptoms.
