One of the beauties of practicing psychotherapy these days is that we have so many models available to us which allow us to find the best tool for each client rather than using a one-size fits all model.
In this workshop we will learn the principles of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and explore how this model can encompass body focused models, mindfulness practices and shamanic techniques.
Psychology Today describes Internal Family Systems (IFS) as "an approach to psychotherapy that identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities or families within each person’s mental system. These sub-personalities consist of wounded parts and painful emotions such as anger and shame, and parts that try to control and protect the person from the pain of the wounded parts. The sub-personalities are often in conflict with each other and with one’s core Self, a concept that describes the confident, compassionate, whole person that is at the core of every individual. IFS focuses on healing the wounded parts and restoring mental balance and harmony by changing the dynamics that create discord among the sub-personalities and the Self."
Bring an open mind, a willingness to experiment and any client situation in which you feel stuck or would like a broader view on how to work with that person.
