Most modes of psychotherapy believed to have “parts” are pathological. NOT in Internal Family Systems (IFS). In IFS, the idea of multiplicity of the mind is normal. Every part has a good intention, and every part has value. Even for trauma survivors.

In the treatment of trauma, IFS differs from traditional phase-oriented treatments. Instead of starting with building resources in clients before processing traumatic memories, it welcomes extreme symptoms from the onset, learns about their positive protective intentions and gets their permission to access the traumatic wounds.

IFS is the treatment method that all clinicians should know. Nearly all clients with a trauma history have innate abilities that help them improve their mental health if they listen to their parts. IFS does just that. IFS is an evidence-based approach for clinicians working with traumatized clients. Once you see it in action, you’ll want to incorporate it into your practice. Clients will leave your office with skills to use outside the therapy room to help them master their emotions.

This experiential training will show video demonstrations and include exercises and meditation techniques to use with your clients.

Learning Objectives

1. Explain the IFS Model.

2. Discuss the concept of client’s parts as defined by Richard Schwartz, PhD..

3. Describe two strategies to regulate clinicians’ own parts.

4. List at least one shortcoming of other models of psychotherapy with respect to working with parts.

5. Describe how IFS helps to prevent professional burnout in therapists.

6. Evaluate the neuroscience behind the healing process in IFS therapy.

Your Presenter Dr. Frank Anderson

Dr. Anderson began his journey by earning his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1985, followed by his M.D. degree from Rush University Medical School in 1989. He completed his residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. After graduation, he stayed on as a clinical instructor at Harvard while working as a staff psychiatrist at the Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute under the direction of Bessel van der Kolk.

In 1994, Dr. Anderson launched his private practice, centered on the treatment of trauma, including single-incident trauma, complex trauma, dissociative identity disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Providing compassionate care, he also specializes in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues. Patients benefit from Dr. Anderson's psychopharmacology expertise as well as his training in sensory motor psychotherapy (SP) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

Dr. Anderson’s professional focus expanded in 2004 after he met his mentor and friend Richard Schwarz, Ph.D., founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS), a model that combines systems thinking and multiplicity of the mind. Dr. Anderson learned to integrate the IFS model into his passion for psychopharmacology, neurobiology and trauma therapy.

Today, Dr. Anderson continues to provide consultation, individual therapy and couples therapy at his office in Concord, Mass. Additionally, he maintains an active career as a speaker, teacher, consultant, writer and researcher who travels the globe, often conducting seminars, workshops and training programs.
