IFS Introduction – 9th & 10th March 2019 in Melbourne
March 9, 2019 @ 9:00 am - March 10, 2019 @ 4:30 pm$220 – $550
In this workshop you will immerse yourself in the Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) model of psychotherapy. Individual and family therapist Simon d’Orsogna will offer an Introductory IFS weekend workshop ahead of the further intermediate workshops and upcoming Certification Trainings in 2019.
Participants in the Introductory Workshop will learn the basics of the IFS approach from the ground up. Suitable to professionals (therapists, psychologists, counsellors, certified coaches and social workers) as well as those interested in self-development.
This two day Introductory workshop is an opportunity for presentations, live demonstrations, experiential learning by doing, and provides a safe space to develop a comfortable facility with the powerful attitudes and techniques that make IFS so effective. The sessions here provide deeper learning and an opportunity to work in small groups with maximum in-the-seat learning in a supportive atmosphere.
Testimonials from attendees of Simon’s recent Introductory IFS workshops
“Great learning, profound and well-organized.
… a great introduction, but as well good for the well prepared.
Very interesting and more emotionally charged than many trainings.
It clarified my own confusion / incongruence about how to apply various theories to a more holistic approach.
Enlightening! Great to have the support of others to implement theory into practice.
Life changing in the way I work with clients.
Fantastic and full of great people. Actually very energizing instead of draining which can often happen even in interesting workshops”
Who is this for?
Participation is for therapists and counsellors, mental health clinicians, certified coaches, or students in accredited graduate training programs.
