SCWK 8867 Internal Family Systems Therapy: A Contemporary Approach for Working with Individuals, Couples, Families & Groups (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This advanced clinical course focuses on the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) into a comprehensive approach that includes guidelines for working with individuals, couples, families and groups. The IFS Model is a new synthesis of two already existing paradigms: systems thinking and the multiplicity of minds. One major and unique contribution of IFS is the concept that it is the connection of the Self to the Parts that brings healing. The IFS Model offers a non-pathologizing approach to identifying and unburdening the faulty beliefs people carry from childhood trauma and troubling patterns of interaction and replacing them with Self-led resources.
