Use IFS to enhance your group therapy practice. The IFS model is a valuable tool in conducting group therapy. Group therapy allows for a live interplay of parts being actively engaged in ways that are not always possible in individual therapy. Groups provide real-time access to parts that can otherwise stay hidden due to well-entrenched protector routines. Using IFS in groups provides a rich potential for growth by providing real-life experiences that reinforce shifts in one’s internal world and provides for opportunities for corrective relational experiences.
In this three-hour workshop participants will:
• Discuss various formats and/or themes for IFS groups
• Develop a greater understand on group dynamics
• Learn group facilitator skills
• Discover the effectiveness of working with intentions
• Increase skills of work experientially with group participants
