Get to know your inner family
Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) is one of the fastest-growing psychotherapeutic models in the world, offering a clear, non-pathological and empowering understanding of human cognitive and emotional life.
IFS provides a dynamic therapeutic approach that allows both the therapist and the client to enter into a transformative relationship, in which even the most wounded parts of personality can be healed.
Richard C. Schwartz, the founder of IFS therapy, has been developing the IFS model for over 30 years. IFS is now practiced by thousands of licensed therapists and other health care specialists around the world. It is a transparent yet sophisticated approach integrating psychology and spirituality, as well as intrapsychic theory and family systems theory.
- works well with couples, families, groups and children;
- proves to be effective in treating trauma;
- is a client-led approach to therapeutic work that respects each client’s pace and goals fully;
- establishes a productive, trusting and collaborative partnership between therapist and client;
- helps the therapist/counsellor to stay centered and open-hearted.
IFS therapy stands out from traditional approaches to psychotherapy, as it uses parts work in a particularly complex way.
IFS teaches us how to start a dialogue with our internal sub-personalities and build a relationship with them. It shows how to enter a state of mind, in which we no longer identify with any part.
It allows us to quickly reach the source of our problems, the most wounded nooks and crannies of our psyche and, most importantly, heal these wounds and release emotional burdens that have been carried for a long time.
In addition, IFS is an effective self-therapy method. Parts work is an inseparable element of learning this model.
Therefore, by enrolling in this training you make the best choice not only for your professional development but also for your personal and spiritual growth.
In addition to offering a thorough understanding of the theory and practice of IFS therapy, this training invites participants to explore their own inner worlds within a training's safe, nurturing space.
As a participant in these trainings you will:
- understand the conceptual basis of the IFS model;
- learn how to apply IFS techniques in your individual work with the client;
- make use of the IFS model and the possibilities it gives in self-therapy.
