Are you ready to create emotional, mental, and spiritual change? Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS) provides a groundbreaking model for transformation, taking an effective and compassionate approach to the parts of you that are stuck in reactive patterns and holding you back from living your best life.
Developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD, IFS draws on systems thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own viewpoint and qualities. Importantly, IFS also sees people as being whole underneath this collection of parts, the true Self.
Dr. Schwartz has been using IFS in retreat settings for more than 30 years. In this 5-day workshop immersion, you will participate in a variety of inner-focused experiential exercises in both large and small groups.
You will learn:
Discover the new possibilities available to you as you free up energy trapped in parts of yourself with other agendas.
Enjoy spending time in the space of your wise inner self, independent of all the parts, who has been there all along, waiting to support you in becoming all you know you can be, as you experience newfound coherence in the pursuit of your life dreams.
Richard Schwartz is founding developer of Internal Family Systems (IFS)SM, a therapeutic model that synthesizes systems thinking and the multiplicity of the mind, suggesting alternative ways of understanding psychic functioning and healing.
In 2000, he founded the Center for Self Leadership in Oak Park, Illinois, which offers three levels of training and workshops in IFS for professionals and the general public.
Dr. Schwartz coauthored, with Michael Nichols, Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, the most widely used family therapy text in the United States, and was associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago Institute for Juvenile Research and later at the Family Institute at Northwestern University.
A featured speaker for national professional organizations, Dr. Schwartz serves on editorial boards of four professional journals and has published five books, including You Are The One You’ve Been Waiting For, as well as more than 50 articles about IFS.
Free yourself from emotional patterns that have prevented you from being able to express yourself fully and enjoy the life of your dreams.
As a therapist and health-care professional, learn an effective model to empower patients and clients in their process of healing and thriving.
Reconnect to your center that is eternally unharmed, wise, compassionate, creative, and full of vitality.
