Introduction to Internal Family Systems

INTRODUCTION

Internal Family Systems is a non-pathologizing, collaborative and empowering model of therapy which fosters transformation, gently, quickly, and effectively. The IFS Model represents a synthesis of two already-existing paradigms: systems thinking and the ‘multiplicity of mind’ (aka ego-states) with an understanding that symptoms are actually the coping mechanism of our parts trying to protect us from pain.

At the end of the training, you will:

  • Understand principles and concepts underpinning IFS as a therapeutic modality

  • Recognise roles that the sub-personalities (parts) play in the presenting issues from a non-pathologizing perspective
