An Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model: Innovation in the alleviation of human suffering


Facilitated By: Jenna Riemersma, LPC, IFS, CSAT-S, CMAT-S, EMDR, NCC, 

Read Bio


This workshop will provide an advanced introduction to the Internal Family Systems (IFS) Model, a unique and compassionate model of psychotherapy that locates the source of healing within the client.  IFS is an evidence-based model that has proven effective in the treatment of such wide ranging physical and emotional challenges as rheumatoid arthritis, depression, anxiety, addiction, sexual compulsivity, trauma, eating disorders, self loathing, dissociation and suicidal ideation.  IFS has surged in popularity in recent years as clinicians have discovered its radical effectiveness with otherwise entrenched populations..  IFS was the basis for the popular Pixar movie Inside Out, and is being used in such diverse environments as inner-city classrooms, professional athletic trainings, therapy centers, and peace negotiations.  Particular attention will be given to ways in which the IFS and CSAT models can be integrated for enhanced clinical outcomes for clients struggling with sexual addiction and betrayal trauma.


Participants will be able to:

  1. Articulate the origins of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model
  2.  Describe the unique components of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of therapy: Self, Exiles, Managers and Firefighters
  3. Conceptualize the function of Manager parts and their protective roles in a client's system
  4. Identify Firefighter parts and the intent to help that is hidden under their sometimes dangerous ways of coping
  5. Articulate the qualities of Exiled parts, the burdens they carry, and the distinction between the two
  6. Identify solutions to the most common ways therapists get "stuck" with the model
  7. Understand the natural multiplicity of the human experience
  8. Conceptualize the positive intent of all parts, expressed in the statement "All Parts Welcome"
  9. Identify the 8 Cs of the Self: curiosity, compassion, confidence, courage, clarity, creativity, connectedness, and calmness.
  10. Understand case conceptualization in IFS therapy with specialized clinical populations such as sexual addiction, betrayal trauma and dissociation.
  11. Understand the essential role that the Self of the therapist plays in therapy
  12. Understand and experience the nature of blending and unblending with parts
  13. Articulate the goals of IFS therapy with direct and indirect access
  14. Identify the steps of healing in the IFS model
  15. Identify the most common Manager fears and how to effectively address them
  16. Process advanced topics in IFS such as polarizations, parts negotiations, and working with therapist's parts in the therapeutic process
  17. Articulate the complexities of skillfully merging the IFS, CSAT, and 12 step models
  18. Identify specific options for further training including how to become a certified IFS therapist through the Center for Self Leadership
