Three-Day Intensive with Frank Anderson: Internal Family Systems (IFS) Experiential Training

Frank Anderson, MD
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Toronto Central Grosvenor St. YMCA Centre, 20 Grosvenor St, Toronto, ON M4Y 2V5

Do you have familiarity with IFS? Are you interested in taking your expertise to the next level?

Frank Anderson returns to Toronto, assisted by a team of highly skilled IFS-certified therapists. This three-day workshop is designed for therapists who have a basic understanding of the IFS model of therapy and are interested in advancing their clinical training in an experiential way.

Frank will begin with a model overview and show how to effectively identify and help clients separate or unblend from protective parts that are associated with attachment trauma. You will learn to proficiently utilize direct access with extreme protective parts and to effectively navigate, resolve and move beyond polarizations that commonly block progress. We will also review the importance of getting permission from those parts and learn how to offer an alternative solution to chronically hopeless internal systems. You will learn the steps of the unburdening process and witness how healing is achieved through live demonstrations.

This unique workshop will include small-group practice sessions, supported by Frank and a team of IFS assistants. The small-group-to-assistant ratio will ensure that your learning experience is both customized to your needs and supported. Incorporated in this intensive training will be meditation, video examples and didactic teachings.

After attending this three-day workshop, you will be able to more confidently incorporate IFS in your clinical practice and be able to deepen your client’s ability to be with their traumatic wounds in a loving and compassionate way.

You Will Learn How To:

• Effectively identify the protective parts your client uses
• Utilize direct access with extreme protective parts
• Navigate, resolve and move beyond polarizations that block progress
• Get permission from protective parts
• Offer alternatives to chronically hopeless systems
• Successfully integrate IFS with your own therapeutic approach
