Join our world-class, 6-month IFS Skills and Supervision programme, guided by IFS Senior Lead Trainer Nancy Sowell
 
 
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is one of the most popular treatment models in psychotherapy today. 
 
And for good reason! The evidence-based IFS approach offers a compassionate, non-pathologising way to effectively work with a client’s inner “parts” … to achieve deep emotional healing and inner transformation.
 
But the challenge for clinicians is that truly intimate, advanced IFS learning programmes are in incredible high-demand … and can take months of waiting to be accepted. 
 
That’s why we’re excited to announce this unique opportunity to get personalised, next-level education and supervision directly from IFS Senior lead trainer Nancy Sowell!
 
Register today and you’ll join a small cohort of your colleagues from around the world for monthly IFS advanced skills CPD workshops and face-to-face supervision sessions that go beyond the IFS basics … teaching you the finer nuances and key IFS skills that lead to deep, long-lasting and transformational change. Through this programme, you’ll learn:
 
  • Powerful IFS interventions that leverage the therapeutic relationship to open up deep, internal healing opportunities

  • How to offer healing to ‘traumatised’ parts of a client that carry deep wounds, guilt, shame and burdens

  • How to work with non-verbal parts when going beyond verbal communication is necessary

  • How to identify the presence of your own parts in-session that could inhibit therapeutic progress

  • And much more - see skills sessions below!

Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of this very limited cohort of 56 participants.
 
This program is not designed to replace IFS Level 1 certification. It also does not count toward IFS supervision certification hours.

Programme Schedule

Skills Session 1 - Effective Use of Direct Access
 
Thursday 17 March 2022
 
Attuned use of direct access is a powerful intervention that can offer parts of the client a healing experience in the therapeutic relationship that paves the way for deep, internal parts work. More extreme parts often need to feel the connection with the therapist’s Self in order to unblend and allow room for their Self inside. This opening session will be focused on when, and how, to use direct access effectively to move the therapy forward.
 
Supervision Group Session 1 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM GMT
 
Skills Session 2 - Working with Non-verbal Parts
 
Thursday 21 April 2022
 
Various parts of the personality don’t communicate in auditory language, including very young parts. Working below the level of verbal communication is sometimes essential. In this session we will explore different strategies for working with non-verbal parts and offering them a healing experience beyond words. 
 
Supervision Group Session 2 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM BST
 
Skills Session 3 - Being the Self in the Room
 
Thursday 19 May 2022
 
The presence of Self is the healing resource in IFS therapy. As therapists, however, we may have our own parts come up. Some parts of ourselves we may recognize and notice, but some can be beyond our conscious awareness. In this session we will discuss: how to identify the presence of our own parts in session, options for how to handle the situation, when and how to speak for a part with Self-leadership.
 
Supervision Group Session 3 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM BST
 
Skills Session 4 - The Relationally Corrective Experience (a.k.a. The “Do-Over”)
 
Thursday 16 June 2022
 
A transformational step in the IFS protocol is to support the client in offering an exiled part a healing experience with their Self in an injurious scene from the past. We will explore and discuss other parts that can come up during this step in the protocol, possibilities for providing exiled parts with what they most need, and Self-rectification of the past.   
 
Supervision Group Session 4 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM BST
 
Skills Session 5 - Self-like Parts
 
Thursday 21 July 2022
 
When we don’t get our appropriate developmental needs met, parts take on roles to help fill the void. Some of the roles protective parts assume are designed to provide positive, socially acceptable, and culturally valued traits or behaviors. It’s easy for other parts of the client’s system, and for other people, to mistake these parts for the client’s Self. This session will focus on common Self-like parts, and how to sensitively broach this subject with clients.
 
Supervision Group Session 5 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM BST
 
Skills Session 6 - Post-Unburdening Integration Work
 
Thursday 18 August 2022
 
Unburdening is a turning point in the IFS protocol. However, integration of unburdening is a process that typically requires attention over time. This session will focus on the importance of: attending to parts post-unburdening, how to identify what is still needed in the system to consolidate the change, and how to support protectors in changing their extreme roles.
 
Supervision Group Session 6 - 17.30PM to 19.00PM BST
