Have you ever said, “I wish I didn’t…” or “I wish I could stop...”? Does this mean that there is more than one “I” inside of you? In a way, yes. Despite sincere intentions, different parts of our psyche can sometimes take on extreme roles or behave in ways that are out of touch with our own best interests.

In order to master this protocol, additional supervised practice is highly recommended.
Nine practice sessions are included in your tuition. You are welcome to schedule additional sessions for $120 per hour in triads ($40 per participant) or dyads ($60 per participant).
IMPORTANT: This training gives you the foundation of IFS theory and opportunities for supervised practice.

Continuing Education Credit
The state of North Carolina allows social workers to take credit for courses that have not been pre-approved. According to the Board's website, " live/synchronous audio-video broadcasts allowing for real time interaction between the instructor and participants attending through electronic means shall not be considered a distance learning activity." Therefore, this online course would be treated as if it took place in-person. We will provide a certificate of completion for up to 28.5 hours, depending on attendance. We have also received approval from CRCC, a NC approved provider, for 28.5 hours for LCMHCs. Participants from other states would need to check with your Board to see about credit.
Comments from Prior Participants of our In-Person Courses
“This training is an excellent introduction to IFS. I walked away with a solid foundation of the model to integrate into my practice. Ted and Harry were very knowledgeable about the model, and gifted group facilitators. The training space was beautiful and comfortable. If they offered another level, I'd sign up in a heartbeat. Very worthwhile.”
“This has been a wonderful opportunity to learn the IFS model... The quality of the training, the knowledge and compassion of the trainers, and the opportunities to get to know each other and practice using the model were excellent.”
“The IFS training with Ted, Harry, and Jeanine was an amazing experience! I love the model and I now incorporate this work in my practice every day. The training provided a perfect balance between didactic learning, group sharing and practice experience. The trainers created a safe and open space for all and the venue is magical. So happy that I had the opportunity to be a part of this experience.”
“I would highly recommend this training as an introduction to IFS! The spacing and pacing of the training allowed for more easeful integration of the model, chance to practice approach with clients in between modules, and then come back together to go over questions that arose. It is obvious that both Ted and Harry have a wide breadth of experience working within the IFS model. They were knowledgeable and also extremely heart based with their teaching styles. The authenticity and presence they provided led to this being a stellar training all around.”
“Ted, Jeanine, and Harry do an incredible job of creating a safe learning environment. The Essentials of IFS is a truly transformational course for those who want to begin to integrate parts work into their practice.”
“The amount of support and practice I received in this training was phenomenal!”
“This training provided me an excellent foundation in IFS and changed my perspective on my work with clients. The model, as conveyed by the trainers, is incredibly kind and supportive of growth.”
