Learning IFS Has Never Been Easier...

You've likely heard your clients explain their feelings of conflicting emotions — "a part of me wants to...and then there is a part of me that doesn't..." as they grapple with their internal self, desires, and behaviors. 

Within the IFS model, you'll help clients understand these conflicting parts, as well as discover a way to talk about them in a productive way.

The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model is one of the fasting growing approaches in the world. 

Why is this? Because IFS can offer deep emotional healing and inner transformation. IFS provides a revolutionary treatment plan for PTSD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders and more. 

Using a non-pathologizing, accelerated approach — rooted in neuroscience — IFS applies inner resources and self-compassion for healing emotional wounding at its core.

Now is your chance to learn directly from the founder himself, Dr. Richard Schwartz and see IFS in action

In this intensive 6-month online course, you will discover first hand through clinical demonstrations the power of the IFS Model. 

You will observe an emotional clinical session with Dr. Schwartz and Tom, a man who's a Vietnam war veteran that has been haunted with trauma for many years. Watch as Dr. Schwartz guides Tom through a journey of Self that enables him to fully embrace the capacity for personal transformation.
