Event Details

In this two-day workshop, participants* will be learn the tools of Michelle Glass’ Daily Parts Meditation Practice. Day one will include Parts Maps, Parts Timelines, and the DPMP, while day two will focus on Parts Catalogue Cards and Parts Externalizations. A mix of some didactic and mostly experiential, participants will be given examples, see live demos, and have practice time, which will inspire confidence in bringing more depth to IFS.

Michelle developed six tools out of her own in-depth IFS healing and need of deeper integration. Intention is on moving beyond the cursory “a part of me” and leaving no part behind, as one advances from the burdened system to the unburdened system and in maintaining strong Self to parts relationships for a Self-led life. Clinicians will discover that becoming a better IFS practitioner resides in in knowing their systems well. her book, Daily Parts Meditation Practice: A Journey of Embodied Integration for Clients and Therapists, is available through the Center for Self Leadership's online bookstore.

* Open to those who have previously taken IFS workshops and trainings.


See the online flyer HERE for more general information on the workshops including the 1 day Melbourne event, and HERE for the Certification trainings, including the Introductory events.


“As I travel around the world teaching IFS, I hear frequently from IFS clients who have been using the DPMP and loving it. I also hear from IFS therapists that they not only are having good results when their clients use it, but that they are finding it helpful for their own parts work. This book will deeply enhance your journey toward being Self-led.”

—Richard Schwartz, Ph.D.
Developer of IFS


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. 




Guidelines on continuing professional development (CPD) from the Australian Psychological Society

Guidelines on continuing professional development (CPD) set down by the Psychology Registration Board of Australia.


The Australian Psychological Society advise that APS Members may accrue Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours by participating in activities that they determine to be relevant to their specific professional approaches, and professional development goals. CPD activities do not need to be endorsed by the APS. A certificate of attendance will be available.




Attendance at the Introductory or online IFS trainings is required to enrol in these workshops. For those who have not attended a previous training or workshop, see link for more information about courses. Having sessions with an IFS practitioner is the most direct way to incorporate the model and to consolidate the learnings.
