Internal family systems
The internal family systems model (IFS) is an integrative approach to individual psychotherapy developed by Richard C. Schwartz. It combines systems thinking with the view the mind is made up relatively discrete sub-personalities each with its own views and qualities.
IFS uses family systems theory to understand how these collections of sub-personalities are organized.
Over the two days you will gain an understanding of:
- history of IFS
- how parts of the personality came into being
- 'self' its qualities and rights of leadership
- the role of 'manager, firefighters and exiles'
- 'in-sight' and direct access to methods of internal dialogue
- methods of witnessing, unburdening and retrieval of parts.
The course times are 5-10pm on the Friday and 9.30am to 5pm on Saturday
The course is facilitated by Irene Davies
