The classes are mostly experiential. We pay attention to creating a loving, supportive environment where people feel safe to be open and vulnerable in exploring themselves. Therefore classes are kept small, 8-12 people.
Class activities: Check-in to discuss the homework, lecture, discussion, group exercises, demonstration sessions, and practice in pairs.
The classes involve homework–both reading and practicing IFS by yourself and with people from your class. You must have enough time to spend roughly two hours on homework each week (for a weekly class).
In each class, you receive an IFS practice manual that Jay has written specifically for the class. You also read Self-Therapy: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Inner Wholeness Using IFS by Jay Earley.
Each class meeting will be recorded, so if you have to miss a class, you can listen to it later at home.
