Presenter:

Richard C. Schwartz, PhD.

Location:

Scottsdale, CA 95066

Schedule:

October 18th - 21st, 2019


Description:

Are you ready to help your patients/clients create emotional and spiritual change? Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS) provides a groundbreaking model for mental health professionals to learn about transformation, taking an effective and compassionate approach to the parts of their patients/clients that are stuck in reactive patterns and holding them back from living their best life.

Developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD, this workshop will introduce the basic principles and techniques of IFS and illustrate with experiential exercises and video illustrations. Clinicians will:

  • Review the history and development of the Internal Family Systems model of therapy
  • Explain the basic assumptions of IFS in regard to non-pathological multiplicity of mind and the concept of “SELF”
  • List the goals of IFS Therapy
  • Describe the concept of releasing uncomfortable feelings and beliefs which allows harmony and balance in the inner system
  • Name the three categories of sub-personalities that most often present in therapy: Manager parts, Firefighter parts, Exiled parts
  • Identify the dynamics of the three-group system
  • Tell the IFS concept of SELF and its role and effectiveness as a leader in the system
  • Interpret the qualities of SELF: curiosity, compassion, confidence, courage, clarity, creativity, connectedness, calmness
  • Summarize the power of working with the client¹s Self in therapy
  • Describe the benefits of IFS therapy
  • Discuss the therapeutic relationship as it applies to the IFS therapist
  • Review and clarify material covered during the workshop.

This application of family systems principles and techniques is now widely used internationally in the treatment of trauma and severe diagnoses. IFS is a gentle, yet powerful, healing delivery system that releases the therapist from the need to be clever because it trusts and empowers the patient’s/client’s Self.

Introduction to Internal Family Systems

Presenter:

Richard C. Schwartz, PhD.

Location:

California Institute of Integral Studies

1453 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

Schedule:

January 25th and 26th, 2020

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Description:

This workshop meets on Saturday & Sunday, January 25th & 26th, 2020, 10am-5pm.

12 Continuing Education Credits Available for California licensed LCSWs, LPCCs, LEPs, and LMFTs. See below for details.

 

The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model is a highly efficient and effective way to access a state of inner clarity and compassion, or the Self, from which self-healing occurs. From the Self, participants are able to calm and transform their troubling inner voices, the critical and anxious chatter, compulsive distractions, as well as feelings of vulnerability, inadequacy, and being overwhelmed. These parts of the psyche are surprisingly responsive and resilient when addressed with respect and patience. They readily forsake their inner battles,and take on valuable inner roles once they are accepted and witnessed.

The IFS model offers an evidence-based, empowering and non-pathologizing paradigm for understanding and transforming our personal inner worlds. It also brings to therapists a sense of awe and adventure as they accompany clients on their inner journeys. IFS offers therapists and healers a way to make their practice more enjoyable, effective, and less of a struggle.

For clients, the healing and reorienting of their “inner families” in an environment of genuine acceptance translates into concrete behavioral change, as well as improved ability to relate well to people. IFS is a gentle, yet powerful, healing delivery system that releases the therapist from the need to be clever because it trusts and empowers the clients’ Self.

This workshop introduces the basic principles and techniques of IFS and illustrates them with experiential exercises and video illustrations. Participants walk away with new perspectives and methods for themselves and even their most difficult clients.

Continuing Education Credits (available for an additional $30): 12 CEs Available

• The California Board of Behavioral Sciences accepts CE credits for LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFT licenses

Description:

For everyone, including therapists, non-therapists, and seasoned IFS practitioners.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a highly effective way of guiding people to a sense of Self, a state of inner clarity and compassion from which they can see their reactivity to others as based in their own history. From the Self, one can calm and transform troubling inner voices and feelings of vulnerability, inadequacy, and overwhelm.

By utilizing IFS, therapists and lay people can hold this Self state of loving-kindness—allowing you to work with your own experience and thus maintain a center from which to engage with others and help them heal. Learn how to remain steady, centered, and openhearted in the face of your own and other’s reactivity in this program that offers

  • An introduction to the IFS model of psychotherapy
  • Tools to apply IFS to relationships
  • New ways to work with counter-transference with clients.

For therapists, Self-leadership in the face of a client’s extreme emotions or predicaments is central to therapeutic effectiveness. Return home ready to work with your side of the dynamic and hold space for others to do the same.

A Retreat Integrating Internal Family Systems with Practices from Tibetan Buddhism

Presenter:

Lama John Makransky and Richard C. Schwartz, PhD.

Location:

Wonderwell Mountain Refuge

253 Philbrick Hill Road

Springfield, NH 03748

Schedule:

May 1st - 3rd, 2020

May 1st at 3:00 pm - May 3rd at noon

Description:

Have you noticed that, even after years of dedicated and sincere spiritual practice, whole areas of our personalities and lives can remain untouched by the compassion and wisdom described in the spiritual teachings? There is a paradigm shift taking place in both psychology and spiritual practice. It hinges on recognizing that we have not just one personality, but many inner sub-personalities, or parts, whose burdens obscure our access to the qualities and energy of our fuller awareness–our true Self. When we notice these parts of ourselves and how our minds have identified with them, we can learn how to welcome and integrate them into our spiritual life.

In this weekend retreat, Richard Schwartz, developer of the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS), and Lama John Makransky, developer of the Innate Compassion Training Model (ICT, adapted from Tibetan Buddhism), explore how principles and practices of IFS and ICT can help us uncover our true Self, which can hold all parts of ourselves and others in the healing and liberating powers of unconditional compassion and wisdom.
