Fundamentals of the Inner World: An IFS Rooted Workshop


May 13-17, 2024 — In Person Workshop — Woodstock, GA


Fundamentals of the Inner World is a 5 day Internal Family Systems rooted workshop. In this learning experience, we will cover many of the fundamentals offered in the level 1 training with some augmentations. As the demand for IFS trainings has surpassed the availability to receive training through the IFS Institute, there is a need for additional avenues of learning that include the core elements of practice that are lacking in didactic only workshops.

Through didactic learning, demonstrations, and triad practice groups, participants will learn or expand on their learning of the key elements of IFS including: the qualities of different categories of parts, the healing capacity of Self energy, befriending protectors, and healing exiles through unburdening. Demonstrations and supervised practice groups will foster confidence in participants application of working with parts and Self in the inner world.
