INTRODUCTION TO INTERNAL FAMILY SYSTEMS – Singapore
May 3 @ 9:00 am - May 11 @ 1:00 pm
Internal Family Systems is a non-pathologizing, collaborative and empowering model of therapy which fosters transformation, gently, quickly, and effectively. The IFS Model represents a synthesis of two already-existing paradigms: systems thinking and the ‘multiplicity of mind’ (aka ego-states) with an understanding that symptoms are actually the coping mechanism of our parts trying to protect us from pain.
IFS is listed in SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices, rating it as “effective for improving general functioning and well-being,” and “promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms.”
