Description

In this  program, we will re-affirm our goal of creating a clinical setting and community where all parts truly are welcome. This translates into Self-to-Self connection across all genders, races, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, sizes, ages, abilities, political affiliations/beliefs, class etc. Self, by as defined by the IFS model, is curiosity, compassion, caring, connection and the like and does not hold biased beliefs. Protector parts hold these biased beliefs with the intention of insuring safety in the internal system. As mental health professionals, we can help our clients parts to look toward them for safety without having to make anyone “other”, and help our clients identify their own protectors holding bias beliefs.  Through identification of these parts both clinicians and patients can accept diversity and richness in ways it currently may not. Applying these tools will allow mental health providers and patients to effectively navigate an external world that is often not welcoming to all parts.

Module 1

Are All Parts Truly Welcome?

What if we could help our patients parts to look toward them for safety without having to make anyone “other?” Would you like to help your patients world reflect more diversity and richness in ways it currently may not?  Would you like to help patients respond effectively in an external world that is often not welcoming to all parts?

In this first session, we will introduce the concepts of both explicit and implicit bias and how the parts that hold these known or unknown beliefs may inform our patients decisions/attitudes toward people who may be different and interfere with Self-to-Self connection.

You will:

  • Experience a meditation to connect us inside and with each other
  • Discuss what is implicit bias? Where do we see it in our community or clinical setting?
  • Receive an introduction to the model that we call “Implicit Bias From the Outside In”
  • Learn a meditation to begin to connect with our own explicit and implicitly held biased beliefs and use this as a tool help patients identify their own bias protectors.

Module 2

Protectors and Bias

In this session we as mental health professionals will begin to deepen our understanding of how our clients parts hold biased beliefs as protectors. We will demonstrate how we can access and respond to these parts within ourselves as well as with clients in Self-led ways that are potentially transformative, both internally and relationally, using the IFS model. We will use role plays and discussion to demonstrate the clinical application of the model and anchor this information internally.

In this month we will cover:

  • Accessing and responding to protectors in ourselves as clinicians and for our patients
  • A meditation to center inside and help clients center themselves
  • The beliefs of biased protectors

Module 3

Beyond Our Limiting Beliefs

In this module we demonstrate, in the clinical setting how to work with the patient's parts in the protective system that limit their access to Self awareness and/or keep them mired in limiting beliefs. Using a videotaped demonstration of the work, we will show the protocol that allows us to demonstrate access to biased beliefs in a safe and non-shaming way so that as therapists, we can then help these parts hold fewer obstacles for our patients to connect with others who are somehow different from them.

In this month you will learn to:

  • Work with the protective system around limiting beliefs
  • Use the protocol that allows access to biased beliefs
  • Connect with Self across differences

Teaching videos

  • 3.2 Review of BFOI Model
  • 3.3 Demo - Using BFOI in an IFS Session
  • 3.4 Unpacking the Session
  • 3.5 Meditation

Module 4

Strategies for working with Bias

In this module we will lead clinicians in a guided meditation for our patients so that they can access their own parts that hold biased beliefs. Participants will be guided in a reliable sequence to access these parts, often previously unknown to our patients. We then continue to work toward understanding the roles these parts have had in the patient's system and why. We will demonstrate how to access the exiles these parts have been protecting in ourselves and for patients and bring them whatever help is needed, including unburdening them if possible and then unburdening their protectors. Participants will then have opportunity to process the experience in the larger group.

In this month we will cover:

  • Guided meditation to access and work with implicitly held biases within ourselves
  • Accessing exiles
  • Closing summary of the module

Teaching VIdeos

  • 4.1 Working with One’s Own Anti-Bias and Bias
  • 4.2 Meditation; An Inner Exploration of Bias
  • 4.3 Guidelines for Debriefing and Sharing
  • 4.4 Concluding Meditation

Objectives

  1. Discuss the nature of implicit bias and how can it inform relationships as well as impact the clinical setting
  2. Describe everyday situations where we see bias in our community and its clinical implications
  3. Receive an introduction to the sub-model of Internal Family Systems that we call “Implicit Bias From the Outside In” for the purposes of self and client psychoeducation
  4. Identify and examine both outward-facing and inward-facing anti-bias parts and their role in the protective system
  5. Explore our own explicit and implicitly held biased beliefs and help patients identify their own bias protectors.
  6. Demonstrate through role play the impact of explicit and implicitly held biased beliefs and how to move through the Implicit Bias From the Outside In model to heal exiled parts and re-integrate into the inner system
  7. Examine through demonstrated role play the implementation of Bias From the Outside and the unburdening of exiles and internally bias parts.
  8. Articulate methods by which ourselves as clinicians can unblend from internal shame and judgement around biased beliefs in order to connect with clients and facilitate client engagement
  9. Demonstrate how to access the exiles these parts have been protecting in ourselves and for patients and bring them whatever help is needed, including unburdening them if possible and then unburdening their protectors.
