    Description:

    In ordinary speech, people instinctively talk about themselves in terms of parts. While it’s easy to take language for granted, Internal Family Systems (IFS) harnesses and utilizes this naturally-occurring phenomenon. Dr. Richard Schwartz started with a Family Systems orientation to his work. After noticing “parts” language coming from his clients, he developed IFS as a way to apply the same perspective to individuals. Much as a family is a single entity made of up individuals, he adopted the orientation to an individual as an entity made up of parts.

    Some people come to therapy because their conflicting parts cause anxiety and self-doubt. And for some, a dominant part of their system can become intolerable. Using objectivity and perspective on a part, IFS can take blame off of parts that are typically exiled by the rest of the person’s system or even their community. IFS is based on the assumption that “all parts are welcome”, even when that seems counter-intuitive. The goal is to simply reduce or even eliminate the part’s suffering, but not the part itself, providing a clear foundation for access to self-compassion.

    This presentation is designed as an overview of IFS and its potential benefits. Formal training is available through the IFS Institute at https://ifs-institute.com.


    Goals:

    Participants will be able to: 

    1. Understand the origin of IFS as a distinct model.
    2. Understand basic assumptions and elements of the IFS model: managers,firefighters, exiles, all distinct from Self.
    3. Distinguish between blended and un-blended states, and understand the different approaches to each.
    4. Listen for and identify discreet parts of a client’s system to help clients increase awareness of their inherent capacity for self-compassion.
    5. Listen for and identify elements of a part, increasing trust through understanding.
