Recorded Webinar- Introduction to Internal Family Systems Therapy

Introduction to Internal Family Systems Therapy

Working with clients in a therapeutic setting requires clinicians to take many of the clients’ internal and external factors into consideration. Join Brandt Ratcliff in a discussion about Internal Family Systems Therapy, an eclectic approach in guiding clients that utilizes psychotherapy built upon the concepts of systems thinking, multiplicity, and attachment. Bradt will discuss how trauma may be conceptualized within the IFS model and the importance of integrating the mind, body, and self when considering treatment.

The objectives for this course include:
1. Learning the history of multiplicity (polypsychism) and how trauma is conceptualized in the IFS model.
2. Exploring the instrapsychic system as a parallel of family systems theory.
3. Examining IFS therapy as integrative of mind, body, and Self, along with the protective nature of emotions, thoughts, behaviors.
4. Discovering the goals and assumptions of IFS therapy
