Integrating Internal Family Systems into your Clinical Practice

  • WMIU-Grand Rapids 2333 E. Beltline SE Grand Rapids, MI 49546 United States (map)

Course Description:

Internal Family systems (IFS) was developed by Richard Schwartz, Ph.D.  IFS is an evidence-based, nonpathological, integrative approach to healing trauma and many other symptoms and burdens client’s carry.  By getting to know and help clients to understand their inner world of parts, we can help them develop compassion for parts that were once hated, villainized or exiled and begin to understand their true, and noble, intentions or burdens.  The model posits that multiplicity of mind applies to all of us and not just those struggling with DID and that our core Self is made of up qualities like, compassion, curiosity, creativity and connection.    The Self, not the therapist, ultimately becomes the true healing agent in this model.
