This is an opportunity for therapists and practitioners who have not yet taken a level 1 IFS Training by the IFS Institute, to dive deeper into Internal Family Systems as it relates to the treatment of trauma.
This 90 minute, “IFS informed” Q and A Discussion Group, will give participants the opportunity to take the next step in learning how to incorporate IFS concepts into their clinical practice. Participants will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base, deepen their skill level, and work with the parts of them that get activated when treating relational trauma. We will enhance the discussion around key concepts that have been presented in previous IFS workshops. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions, participate in live demonstrations and practice what they have learned in online breakout rooms.
Hope and light are on the horizon to help clients overcome the challenges of healing and releasing the pain of relational trauma.
The highly acclaimed Transcending Trauma explores a unique, compassionate, and evidence-based approach to resolving complex and dissociative trauma. In this transformative book Frank Anderson, MD, masterfully details an IFS path to therapy that allows clients to access their inherent capacity for healing – called Self-energy – while also helping them welcome, as opposed to manage, the extreme emotions frequently associated with trauma.
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) provides a revolutionary treatment plan for PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders and more.
Using a non-pathologizing, accelerated approach -- rooted in neuroscience -- IFS applies inner resources and self-compassion for healing emotional wounding at its core. This new manual offers straight-forward explanations and illustrates a wide variety of applications. Easy to read and highly practical.

A crucial contribution that brings clarity and light to the often dark, confusing journey of treating complex PTSD.
Richard C. Schwartz, PhD, founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS)
People who possess courage have the capacity to tackle all that comes their way.
They’re not dominated by fear or driven by shame. They are not worried or preoccupied about getting hurt or abandoned or dominated by someone. People with courage possess the confidence and ability to move through whatever shows up in their life. Resilience, on the other hand, is active when someone is faced with a challenge. People rise to the occasion, they stand up and withstand the hardship.See Article
