IFS Workshop at Isalen in June

SBGI: Transformational Journeys through Your Psyche and Body: Internal Family Systems Therapy and Somatic Resourcing

At Esalen Institute in Big Sur June 26-July 1, 2011
Jay Earley, Bonnie Weiss, JoAnna Chartrand-Benz

Our psychological issues show up as a multitude of conflicting inner voices and tensions in our bodies. In this workshop, we will work with Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) to explore our subpersonalities, befriend them, and heal them. We will integrate this with Somatic Resourcing to transform those bodily patterns that are inhibiting our full embodiment. This combined process allows you to bring love to all aspects of yourself and heal your mind and body, leading to aliveness and fluid living. [Read more…]

Day 1:  An Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model – This workshop will introduce the principles and methods of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model.  IFS is a way to understand and work with individuals, couples and families that helps people quickly find and differentiate their Self– a core of valuable leadership qualities– and harmonize their internal family of sub-personalities or ” parts.”  IFS synthesizes two paradigms:  systems thinking and the multiplicity of the mind– and brings concepts and methods from many schools of family therapy to the world of sub personalities.

New IFS Therapy Group

In this group, you will learn how to use the powerful IFS model in your work on yourself, both in the group, on your own, and in peer counseling with other group members at home. The text for this work is Jay’s book Self-Therapy. We will use a variety of modalities:
1. One person does individual work and everyone else supports them and learns from it.
2. Group exercises, where everyone works on a similar issue at the same time.
3. One person works on their parts by having other group members role play them.
4. Sharing your life issues and struggles and getting support from the group.
5. Practicing speaking for your parts as the arise in the group process.
6. Working through interpersonal issues that come up with other people in the group.
7. Learning about how IFS can be applied to specific psychological issues and how to develop the healthy capacities needed to resolve the issue.

Inner Critic Workshop and Phone Class

Struggling with low self-esteem, depression, perfectionism, self-doubt, or inner conflict? These issues often stem from your Inner Critic, a part of you that judges you and makes you feel bad about yourself. It’s that voice inside that constantly berates you, doubts you, and undermines your self-confidence.

Our study of Inner Critic parts has given us a comprehensive understanding of the different forms they take and how to transform them. Take our questionnaire to learn more about your Critic.
