Description

Most modes of psychotherapy believe to have “parts” is pathological. NOT in Internal Family Systems (IFS). In IFS, the idea of multiplicity of the mind is normal. Every part has a good intention, and every part has value. Even for trauma survivors.

In the treatment of trauma, IFS is different from traditional phase-oriented treatments. Instead of starting with building resources in clients before processing traumatic memories, it welcomes extreme symptoms from the onset, learns about their positive protective intentions and gets their permission to access the traumatic wounds. IFS also differs from traditional attachment focused therapies, both value the therapeutic relationship; however, IFS additionally supports the relationship between the client’s “Self” and their part as the primary healing agent.

Hailed by Dr. van der Kolk, the world’s leading expert in trauma, IFS is the treatment method that all clinicians should know. Nearly all clients with a trauma history have innate abilities that help them improve their mental health if they listen to their parts. IFS does just that. IFS is an evidence-based approach for clinicians working with traumatized clients. Once you see it in action, you’ll want to incorporate it into your practice.

Watch IFS and trauma expert Frank Anderson, MD, colleague of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and Dr. Richard Schwartz, in this transformational certificate training.

Clients will leave your office with skills to use outside the therapy room to help them master their emotions. This experiential training will show video demonstrations and include exercises and meditation techniques to use with your clients.

Differentiate Therapeutic Issues from Biological Conditions

  • Intersection of biology and situation (“Real Mind-Body Medicine”)
  • Therapist’s role in biology – When to refer and when to work it through
  • Psychotherapy of psychopharmacology

The IFS Technique

Step 1: Identify the Target Symptom

  • Identify the “target symptom”
  • Apply meditation practices
  • Separate the person (self) from the symptom
  • Learn about its intention

Step 2: Gain Access to Internal Strengths & Resource for Healing

  • Move from defensiveness to curiosity
  • The “Self” of the therapist-countertransference redefined
  • Access compassion to open the pathways toward healing
  • Role of empathy in healing – the benefits and the downsides

Step 3: Find the Fear and Function of the Symptom

  • Focusing on its fear
  • The real story behind the symptom
  • Foster the internal relationship

Attachment Disorders and Relational Trauma

  • IFS as internal attachment work
  • Attachment styles as parts of self
  • Attachment trauma – the role of the therapist
  • Heal relational wounds of childhood
  • Client’s “Self” as the corrective object
  • Work with preverbal trauma

The Neurobiology of Trauma

  • Neuroscience for therapists – what you need to know
  • Fear circuitry and the development of PTSD
  • Extreme reactions and Autonomic Nervous System
  • Rage to suicide and dissociation to shame

Dealing with the Extreme Reactions of Trauma

  • Talk directly to the symptom-direct access
  • Introducing the part to the “Self”
  • Deal with the overwhelm – no need for building resources
  • Therapist parts – How to stay clear and calm while working with clients in extreme states

How Neuroscience Informs Therapeutic Decisions

  • Top-down and bottom-up strategies rooted in neuroscience
  • When it’s necessary to take over and “be the auxiliary brain” for your client
  • Sensing vs. making sense of things
  • At home strategies

Step 4: Healing of Traumatic Wounds:

  • Three phases to healing:
    • Witness the pain
    • Remove the wounded part out of the past
    • Let go of the feelings, thoughts and beliefs
  • Science behind the healing – memory reconsolidation

Integrate IFS into Your Treatment Approach

  • EMDR, DBT, Sensorimotor/SE and other methods
  • Transformation vs adaptation or rehabilitation
  • Going beyond the cognitive (experiential therapies)
  • Integrate IFS with your current clinical approach
