IFS Institute is pleased to present the IFS 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 4+ 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 deepen our knowledge of the model. 

During the annual 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 Spring 2021 (starting May 1st), Fall 2021 (starting September 1st), Winter 2022 (starting January 1st) modules all for $496!

During this next module starting on May 1st, you will be led by Mariel Pastor, M.A. in Trailheads to Transformation: Harvesting Resources from the Unburdened System. This module will help foster the emergence of the Self energy within every part and how to use the Unburdened System Mandala as a vision for mindful multiplicity in day-to-day life. Participants will begin to identify how unburndened parts can work together towards a personal life meaning or vision.

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

Spring 2021 Trailheads to Transformation: Harvesting Resources from the Unburdened System

Led by Lead IFS Trainer Mariel Pastor, M.A. LMFT 

In the context of COVID-19, IFS therapists may feel challenged accessing Self energy in clients or in themselves.  The acute activation of so many parts during this collective trauma requires a renewed appreciation for why we welcome all parts, and when we would want them to step forward and work together.  This program will help foster the emergence of the Self energy within every part and uses the Unburdened System Mandala as a vision for mindful multiplicity in day-to-day life.   Participants will begin to identify how unburdened parts can work together towards a personal life meaning or vision. 

Participants will discover ways to “flesh out” parts as multi-dimensional subpersonalities far beyond the initial trailhead -- an often under-developed skill that deepens trust within the system and allows for a more authentic healing process.   Special emphasis is given to the steps of the model post-unburdening so that transformative change feels more concretely anchored and readily accessible.  Techniques will be practiced for differentiating an array of Self-like parts without shaming or indulging them.
