IFS Institute is pleased to present the IFS Online Continuity Program.

We are thrilled to be offering this one-of-a-kind online community on a global platform for practitioners who are enrolled in or have completed IFS Level 1 Training, and those who have participated in the IFS Online Circle. Over the last 3 years this exclusive community has grown to over 800 members!

Join a community with devoted IFS practitioners from around the world and stay connected, share ideas, and support each other as we work together to deep our knowledge of the model. 

In the IFS Continuity Program, each month we will come together for in-depth discussion of different applications of the IFS model, as well as other topics of high importance for IFS practitioners.

You will be able to participate in LIVE monthly calls that end with a Q&A session with me and some of our most advanced trainers. A highlight for me each month will be sharing case studies and demos so that you can see the elegance and subtleties of the IFS model in action to navigate challenging clients. We will invite you to contribute case studies, and also ask for participant volunteers to demo with me.

We are thrilled to be offering this online community on a global platform for continuous learning, where practitioners around the world can stay connected, share ideas, and support each other.

With this limited-time offer, you will receive 12 months of IFS content, broken down into trimester modules.

When you join the IFS Continuity Program, you will receive the Winter 2020 (starting January 1st), Spring 2020 (starting May 1st), and Fall 2020 (starting September 1st) modules all for $496!

You will be part of a community of like-minded professionals all seeking to elevate their IFS treatment approach. The IFS Continuity Program is on-going, so you will stay in the program until you decide otherwise, renewing at an exclusive annual rate of $496/year.

Our program is starting very soon, so don't hesitate because enrollment will only be open for a short period of time.

We invite you to join us today.

In appreciation,

Dr. Richard Schwartz
