Description

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is fast becoming one of the most popular ‘parts’ psychotherapy models. IFS uses a non-pathologizing, accelerated approach rooted in neuroscience, giving you an effective, evidence-based treatment model to help all your clients experience deep healing.

It works because it’s flexible enough to meet clients where they are and structured enough to guide them through their pain. Presenting issues and symptoms are seen as the coping mechanisms of Parts (sub-personalities/ego-states) actively trying to protect us from pain through proactive coping strategies or reactive impulses. The IFS therapist supports the client to unblend or differentiate from each Part and enter an internal dialogue.  Clients learn to listen inside themselves with self-compassion and curiosity (Self), and, in the process release beliefs, emotions, sensations, patterns and urges that have constrained their lives. IFS also enhances mindful awareness and self-compassion through getting to know Parts in a methodical yet intimate way. IFS therapists confidently welcome client symptoms as being an introduction to protective Parts both reducing client resistance and therapist fatigue or discouragement.

In this introduction to IFS talk, Leona Dawson will provide a foundational understanding of the IFS therapy model and offers insights into the roles and functions of parts in common presenting issues.

IFS is effective in practice because it offers a deep, transformational healing to clients AND it allows clinicians the ability to connect with ANY client differentiating the person from their symptom.
