This course is designed for professionals (therapists, psychologists, counsellors, certified coaches and social workers) as well as those interested in self-development. Those seeking intensive psychotherapeutic experiences or who are actively in therapy for complex trauma (or similar) are not recommended to attend.Please ring the organiser to discuss confidentially if you have concerns about your suitability for attendance.

Participants will learn the fundamental IFS concepts and techniques in order to apply them to their professional and personal lives. The format of the Training involves didactic learning as well as a wide range of experiential processes designed to help participants deepen their understanding of IFS. One of the most important experiential aspects of the training involves daily opportunities to practice using IFS skills with each other. In this way, participants learn by both doing and receiving the work. Learning objectives covered in this retreat style learning curriculum are overviewed here

To receive the certificate of attendance you must attend BOTH weeks of training and the Saturday mornings teleconferences. For requirements to be certified as either an IFS Therapist or an IFS Practitioner see the CSL website
