Internal Family Systems (IFS):
The Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) uses systems thinking and an understanding that we are all have different parts of ourselves that work both for and against our wellbeing. IFS also sees people as being whole, underneath a collection of parts. Everyone has a true self or spiritual center, known as the Self to distinguish it from the parts. Even people whose experience is dominated by parts have access to this Self and its healing qualities of curiosity, connectedness, compassion, and calmness. IFS sees the therapist's job as helping the client to disentangle themselves from their parts and access the Self, which can then connect with each part and heal it, so that the parts can let go of their destructive roles and enter into a harmonious collaboration, led by the Self.
“This presentation will be an interactive introduction to identifying and distinguishing your parts and Self, and discussing how this knowledge can benefit your wellbeing, and how you can extend it to your clients.”
