In Level 3 trainings programs, Level 2 graduates work intensively with fellow advanced practitioners to further develop their knowledge of IFS and hone their skills with its techniques.  You are a good fit for Level 3 if your goal is not only to become a better therapist, but also to:

  • Develop a greater understanding of one’s Trailheads, Therapist Parts, Blind spots, and IFS Practices for daily life. Identify and navigate the core concepts of IFS - such as Self energy,  unblending, and befriending - that contributes to the healing process.

  • Learn tested strategies in helping Critic Parts transform.

  • Develop enhanced skills in negotiating with entrenched Protectors

  • Increase skills in helping Exile Parts unburden

  • Create a comprehensive understanding or how Attachment Theory applies to the therapeutic relationship, healing, and the internal connection and harmony.

  • Explore advanced topics related to legacy burdens passed down to us and how IFS can transform these burdens.

The Level 3 format includes demonstration, experiential group exercise, large and small group discussion, extended medtiation, and intensive personal work.  Please see each training's website brochure for details.

Internal Family Systems is at the forefront of a movement toward a more collaborative therapeutic approach that relies on clients’ intuitive wisdom. IFS offers a clear, non-pathologizing, and empowering view of human cognitive and emotional life and provides a dynamic therapeutic approach that allows both therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur.
