Course Description:

IFS is not only a healing modality for trauma, but it’s also a paradigm for improving your overall therapeutic skills. To be able to know yourself from the inside out, to be connected to and take responsibility for your own parts as well as be open and compassionate toward clients, will remarkably transform your clinical practice.

Since 1992, I’ve been working in the field of trauma. I was fortunate to have been taught by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a world-renowned trauma expert. After becoming a psychiatrist at the Trauma Center, under the direction of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, I was exposed to many severely traumatized people and quickly learned traditional therapy was not effective. One decade later, I met Dr. Richard Schwartz, the founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS). That’s when I quickly discovered that IFS is one of the most popular, new, and effective evidence-based treatment techniques to heal emotional wounds – the wounds that prevent clients from moving forward in therapy.

Through IFS, I have healed my own trauma, helped my clients overcome their painful life experiences and taught countless therapists how to do the same. Over 5-days, I will immerse you in my proven techniques on how to:
  • apply IFS into your clinical practice step-by-step
  • maximize your clinical outcomes with trauma-informed IFS techniques rooted from neuroscience
  • successfully overcome even the most complex traumas and its common co-morbidities, including anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive behavior and more
Please come join me at the beautiful Sedona Mago Retreat Center. There will be additional time set aside to rest, rejuvenate, heal, connect with nature and get to know yourself and your parts better, so you can help your clients heal from the inside out.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in Sedona!

Objectives:

  1. Investigate Internal Family Systems (IFS) concepts, steps and techniques to broaden treatment intervention options.
  2. Discover how IFS brings a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders by translating common comorbidities into parts language.
  3. Examine the IFS view that client symptoms and psychopathology are attempts to solve an emotional problem.
  4. View a clinical session to deepen one’s understanding of IFS treatment strategies.
  5. Practice clinical interventions to enhance effectiveness in sessions.
  6. Consider the benefits of applying IFS to one’s current clinical practice.
  7. Integrate the IFS model into your clinical practice and accelerate the healing from complex trauma.
  8. Identify, specify and clarify the protective parts of clients with trauma histories to help with assessment and treatment planning.
  9. Offer an alternative view of symptoms and psychopathology, showing how client’s parts are trying to protect them from emotional pan and psychological pain.
  10. Demonstrate how IFS translates common comorbidities into parts language, showing a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders.
  11. Communicate how IFS increases the therapist’s curious and compassionate self when working with clients who have trauma histories.
  12. Differentiate a therapeutic issue from a biological condition for better decision making in your clinical practice.
  13. Compare traditional attachment theory perspectives on healing to the IFS view (an internal attachment model) and learn to trust the clients’ internal relationship to heal their traumatic wounds.
  14. Understand how to respond to the extreme symptoms of trauma by determining if they are rooted in sympathetic activation or parasympathetic withdrawal.
  15. Demonstrate IFS specific therapeutic techniques that shift arousal and withdrawal, allowing quicker access to clients’ traumatic vulnerabilities.
  16. Develop a deep understanding of how neuroscience informs therapeutic decisions in IFS therapy.
  17. Explain the neuroscience behind extreme parts of your clients that are hyper-aroused or blunted.
  18. Integrate IFS with your current treatment approaches including EMDR, DBT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
