About the Event:

The Internal Family Systems (IFS) Model was developed by Richard C. Schwartz, PhD., and offers an evidenced-based, non-pathologizing model of healing. The IFS model pairs systems thinking with the idea that multiplicity exists within all of us. I will provide an introduction to Internal Family Systems therapy, introduce the basic assumptions of the IFS model, discuss the role of the therapist in the model, identify the basic goals of the IFS model, and identify and describe the process of healing within the IFS model.

The learning objectives of this presentation are:

             *To introduce the basic assumptions of the IFS model

             * To identify the role of the therapist in the IFS model

             * To identify the basic goals of the IFS model

             * To identify and describe the process of healing within the IFS model

             * To provide an opportunity for participants to explore their own internal systems and “parts”

             * To provide participants an opportunity to watch a live demonstration of the model with me and my colleague, Martha Fischer.
