Using Internal Family Systems (IFS) to Create and Sustain Authentic Planetary Hope
Course Description

Our planetary trajectory of increasingly frequent natural disasters is creating mental distress: depression, PTSD, anxiety, grief, relationship strains, and substance abuse. The spiritual wisdom of the evidence-based IFS model offers a healing path towards grounded, authentic responding to these unprecedented challenges.

This workshop will provide an overview of the IFS framework; insights into human tendencies or 'parts' that contribute to making our current predicament so complex or 'wicked;' and experiential exercises for using IFS to expand both therapists' and clients' spiritual and emotional capacities for engaged, empowered responsiveness.
