[+] [-] 048925 - Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS):
  1. Integrate the IFS model into your clinical practice and accelerate healing for PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and eating disorders.
  2. Develop a deep understanding of how neuroscience informs therapeutic decisions in IFS therapy.
  3. Identify, specify and clarify the protective parts of clients with trauma histories to help with assessment and treatment planning.
  4. Offer an alternate view of symptoms and psychopathology, showing how client’s parts are actually trying to protect them from emotional pain and psychological pain.
  5. Demonstrate how IFS translates common comorbidities into parts language, showing a non-pathological perspective of mental health disorders.
  6. Integrate IFS with your current treatment approaches including EMDR, DBT, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.

Outline
[+] [-] 048925 - Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS):
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
  • Origins of IFS - the work of Richard Schwartz, PhD
  • A non-pathologizing, accelerated approach rooted in neuroscience
  • Apply inner resources and self-compassion for healing
  • How to heal implicit memory wounds
  • Harness neuroscience for techniques that cure traumatic wounds
The IFS Technique

Step 1: Identifying the Diagnoses & Symptoms
  • Assess the diagnoses: PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and eating disorders
  • Apply Meditation practices
    • Finding the symptom
    • Focusing on its fear
    • Separating the person (self) from the symptom
    • Becoming curious about it
    • Find the real story behind the symptom
Step 2: Gain Access to Internal Strengths & Resources for Healing
  • Moving from defensiveness to curiosity
  • Access compassion to open the pathways toward healing
  • Foster “internal attachment” work
  • The “Self” of the therapist-countertransference redefined
Step 3: Healing of the Traumatic Wound
  • Three phases to healing the wound:
    • Witness the pain
    • Remove the wounded part out of the past
    • Let go of the feelings, thoughts and beliefs
  • Memory reconsolidation & neuroscience
Integrate IFS into Your Treatment Approach
  • EMDR, DBT, Sensorimotor and other methods
  • Transformation vs adaptation or rehabilitation
  • Going beyond the cognitive
  • Integrate IFS with your current clinical approach

RICHARD C. SCHWARTZ, PHD

Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., earned his Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy from Purdue University, after which he began a long association with the Institute for Juvenile Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and more recently at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, attaining the status of associate professor at both institutions. He is co-author, with Michael Nichols, of Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, the most widely used family therapy text in the United States.

Dr. Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems in response to clients’ descriptions of experiencing various parts – many extreme – within themselves. He noticed that when these parts felt safe and had their concerns addressed, they were less disruptive and would accede to the wise leadership of what Dr. Schwartz came to call the “Self.” In developing IFS, he recognized that, as in systemic family theory, parts take on characteristic roles that help define the inner world of the clients. The coordinating Self, which embodies qualities of confidence, openness, and compassion, acts as a center around which the various parts constellate. Because IFS locates the source of healing within the client, the therapist is freed to focus on guiding the client’s access to his or her true Self and supporting the client in harnessing its wisdom. This approach makes IFS a non-pathologizing, hopeful framework within which to practice psychotherapy. It provides an alternative understanding of psychic functioning and healing that allows for innovative techniques in relieving clients symptoms and suffering.

In 2000, Richard Schwartz founded The Center for Self Leadership in Oak Park, Illinois. Dr. Schwartz is a featured speaker for many national psychotherapy organizations and a fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and he serves on the editorial boards of four professional journals. He has published four books and over 50 articles about IFS. His books include Internal Family Systems Skills Training Manual (with Frank Anderson, M.D. and Martha Sweezy, Ph.D.) (PESI, 2017), Internal Family Systems Therapy (Guilford Press, 1997), Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model (Tarcher, 2001), and The Mosaic Mind (with Regina Goulding) (Trailheads, 2003), as well as Metaframeworks (with Doug Breunlin and Betty Karrer) (Jossey-Bass, 1997). Dr. Schwartz lives and practices in Brookline, MA and is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard School of Medicine.
