New this year, IFS Conference LIVE Web Streaming!
This year’s IFS Conference is absolutely packed with crucial information to help deepen your skills and improve your knowledge of the IFS model. We’ve gathered some of the best minds in IFS to show how the model has been adapted by leaders in the fields of education, coaching, consulting, mediation, conflict resolution, spirituality, medicine, and many more.
Now, you don’t want you to miss this powerful information if you don't have time to travel to the annual IFS Conference...
We have selected key presentations that effectively demonstrate the IFS without Borders conference to be available for you via live web streaming!
As we explore the dissolving external borders of our human condition, we also celebrate the internal border erosion that is central to the experience of IFS. We know from many years of IFS practice that our parts tend to construct borders between one another, and the more powerful these borders are within us, the greater our difficulties. Through IFS, the borders we construct diminish as we get to know our parts and as they get to know one another. Through the work of IFS, we empower and strengthen Self leadership. As we see the borders between our parts come down, we’re better able to love and empathize internally, as well as, becoming more capable to love one another.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate IFS’s ever-increasing power to bring down borders, both internal and external.
Please Notice: Dr. Richard Schwartz full-day session on IFS as Potential Treatment for Physical Illness: Healing Parts That Make Us Sick is SOLD OUT for in-person attendees — The only way for you to catch his transformative session is via our new LIVE web streaming.

IFS has proven effective with medical syndromes (Shaddick et al., 2013), and in this workshop, we will explore both the theory and practice around that work. Clearly, parts can affect our bodies when they have no other route to get through to us, and IFS can help them realize they don’t have to do that. Lissa Rankin, MD, the New York Times best-selling author of Mind Over Medicine, has been researching her seventh book, Sacred Medicine, for seven years. When Western medicine not only failed to help her own illness, but made it worse, she began researching treatments that harnessed our minds’ innate ability to self-repair, as well how moving stuck life force through the body can potentially cure disease. Four years ago, she discovered IFS and sees it as a paradigm-shifting way to understand and integrate many healing modalities, including conventional medicine, psychotherapy, spirituality, energy healing, and shamanism.
Dr. Lukas is an Associate Professor of Family Medicine who treats people with life-threatening illness and is an active faculty member for hundreds of medical students and residents. She integrates IFS principles into her work and is now looking for ways to introduce IFS to medical learners at various stages of their personal and professional development.
This workshop will explore the integration of IFS and other healing modalities, offer experiential exercises to help you learn to listen to the parts that are affecting your body and to those who know how to heal it, and increase your access to healing Self energy.

Inner Peace Coach (IPC) Initiative in China: Bringing IFS to the Lay Public on a Grand Scale
X. X. Guo, MD, PhD, Founder of Hailan Family Well-being, and Joy X. Y. Huang, MA
Traditionally in the Western world, IFS has been taught to and utilized by mental health professionals in a 1:1 format. Yet the potential of IFS resonates without borders. In China, Hailan Family Well-being, a pioneering personal growth and transformation organization, piloted, with endorsement from the Center of Self Leadership (CSL), an IFS-based Inner Peace Coach (IPC) initiative that aims to bring IFS to the lay public on a grand scale. A 320-person Introduction to IFS workshop (led by Dick Schwartz) and a 130-person retreat on Working with Exiles (led by Paul Ginter) have been successfully completed in China in 2017 and 2018. Both Dick and Paul will share their experience of bringing IFS to China. We are honored to have Dr. Hailan Guo, founder of this organization, join us from China. She’ll introduce the secret of effectively bringing IFS to the lay public on a grand scale via her integrated 865 Self-coaching model.

Deran Young, LICSW, Caitlin Capistran, DPT and Sarah Houy, MA, LPC, RYT, BCN
As the use of IFS expands and evolves, we’re excited to welcome three innovative practitioners who are extending the reach of IFS beyond the traditional application of the model. Deran, Caitlin, and Sarah are all breaking down borders to bring IFS to new places. During this plenary session, you’re invited to hear how these IFS innovators are using IFS in new ways and to consider how you are expanding the use of IFS in your own community.
- IFS & Diversity: As the founder of Black Therapists Rock, Deran has been dedicated to making mental health and emotional well-being culturally relevant for marginalized communities. During this session, she will explain how she utilizes IFS to foster passion for diversity and dedication to unity. Deran will also share how she has personally removed the painful, though once necessary, borders around her own heart.
- IFS & the Body: Dr. Caitlin Capistran is taking IFS inside the body to dissolve the border between body and mind. She’ll share what our bodies can reveal about our parts and how IFS can be used to transform our physiology and support physical health. Caitlin will discuss how our bodies reflect our internal systems, the direct impact parts can have on our physiology, and how to.
- IFS & Technology: Sarah is passionate about breaking down borders through the integration of technology and mental health. She will share scenarios from her own experience and how she sees the utilization of IFS and technology together to expand and enhance the healing capacity of IFS.
Ketamine-Assisted IFS Therapy
Dr Robert M Grant, MD, MPH
Ketamine is a legal and FDA approved psychedelic medication for treatment of depression. Integrating psychotherapy with ketamine treatment prolongs the benefit from single ketamine treatments. IFS is well suited for use with psychedelic therapies because it embraces the multiplicity of the mind, seeks full consent continuously, enables reprocessing of traumatic memories, leverages the ketamine induced neuroplasticity in shifting neural networks involved in mood, memory and self-perception. Dr Grant has clinical experience over 2 years with integrating ketamine assisted psychotherapy with IFS; the process and outcomes will be presented.
