“…by caring for our parts in … a nurturing way…embodying Self…not only are we creating more harmony inside and between us, but we’re also bringing more Self energy to the planet…”
Richard Schwartz

The IFS approach dovetails well with the Transpersonal and is frequently applied to issues such as anxiety, depression, complex trauma, autoimmune disorders, addictions, eating disorders and more; it holds Self as central to psychological and spiritual development; “parts” approximate to sub-personalities; it is an evidence based approach. This workshop is an introduction to the central tenets of IFS through an experiential Transpersonal approach including topics such as:

- An introduction to how the central tenets of IFS integrate into the Transpersonal Integrative Approach to psychotherapy

- Exploration of sensations, thoughts, feelings, behaviours, fantasies, dreams, visualisations, impulses, voices, images for identifying parts, subpersonalities and aspects of the psyche

- A compassionate approach to working with the shadow

- How to identify parts/subpersonalities/shadow and how to work with them to bring about healing

Topics include exploring the saboteur and subpersonalities’ parts through the Transpersonal and IFS lenses to deepen our understanding of the IFS model and how this can be integrated into the Transpersonal. As there will be a maximum of 12 participants, there will be sufficient time for: Demonstrations. Practical experiential exercises. Discussion of client issues. Ample time for questions

This workshop is likely to form a pre-requisite for future IFS informed workshops including:
IFS Transpersonal approach to working with trauma. IFS Transpersonal approach to eating disorders and addiction. Advanced IFS Transpersonal skills practice workshop. Working creatively with IFS through a Transpersonal lens
