Format. The classes meet twice a month for two hours by video-conference. Each class includes teaching, lots of sharing and discussion, demonstration IFS sessions where I work with a volunteer from the class, and experiential group exercises. You pair up with each other between classes to practice doing IFS sessions with each other. This is a very important part of the class, and people tell me how much they get from working with each other. We develop a really close-knit, connected group (especially since we can see each other by video-conference), which makes it safe to be vulnerable with each other.
Professionals. Therapists and coaches (and other helping professionals) are welcome in the classes and some classes are all professionals. For those classes, we will engage in activities aimed primarily at professionals. These classes are approved by the Center for Self-Leadership for IFS CE credit, but they are not a substitute for taking the IFS Level 1 professional training from the Center for Self-Leadership.
