Event description
In this workshop you will immerse yourself in the Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) model of psychotherapy.

About this Event

Simon d'Orsogna MA will offer an Introductory IFS workshop (Saturday 13th November 2021 to Sunday 14th November 2021) ahead of further intermediate workshops and official certification trainings.

Participants in the Introductory Workshop will learn the basics of the IFS approach from the ground up. Suitable to professionals (therapists, psychologists, counsellors, certified coaches, expressive and therapeutic arts practitioners, and social workers) as well as those seriously interested in their self-development. The intermediate workshops and Level 1 trainings will be a natural next step to those who have completed the Introductory workshop, or are familiar with the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy. The focus is going deeper into the IFS skills and techniques, and enhancing personal capacity.

This two day Introductory workshop is an opportunity for presentations, live or video demonstrations, experiential learning by doing, and provides a safe space to develop a comfortable facility with the powerful attitudes and techniques that make IFS so effective. The sessions here provide deeper learning and an opportunity to work in small groups with maximum in-the-seat learning in a supportive atmosphere. A number of experienced assistants will coach and support triads in live learning sessions each day.

See the online flyer HERE for more general information on both Introductory workshops and Certification trainings, including peer practice events.

 

Testimonials from attendees of Simon's Introductory IFS workshops

"Great learning, profound and well-organised. Very competently presented and well structured.

... a great introduction, but as well good for the well prepared.

Very interesting and more emotionally charged than many trainings.

It clarified my own confusion / incongruence about how to apply various theories to a more holistic approach.

Enlightening! Great to have the support of others to implement theory into practice.

Gentle and beautifully paced. A great balance of didactic and practical work. The latter a bit intimidating but well worth the risk. Joyful and funny at times. I loved it.

Fantastic and full of great people. Actually very energizing instead of draining which can often happen even in interesting workshops”

 

Who is this for?

Participation is for therapists and counsellors, mental health clinicians, certified coaches, or students in accredited graduate training programs. Practitioners working experientially and wholistically will find this approach broadens and makes more acute their existing work through using the steps of the IFS 'parts' model.

 

Note - these workshops qualify for equivalent hours of specialised training that may be counted towards Continuing Professional Development according to requirements set down by your accrediting body. Registered health professionals have a responsibility to ensure that they continue to maintain, enhance and extend their knowledge and skills throughout their working lives.
