Implicit IFS

Indirect & Subtle Ways to Bring IFS to Your Client

Presented by Bruce Hersey LCSW

This is a 3 hour course designed for graduates of IFS Level One Training, or a minimum of 20 hours of IFS workshop experience, such as IFS Conference, IFS Circle, IFS Continuity, etc.

This workshop provides the IFS practitioner with the tools and skills to lead clients into experiencing IFS without becoming entangled in philosophical arm-wrestling, relying on 'parts language,' or convincing them with conceptual gobbledygook (commonly known as psychobabble).

No more front-loading of the model and trying to force square pegs into round holes. The IFS model and concepts can be back-filled following specific experiences you facilitate for the client. Once the client has the experience, you can name it and provide the conceptual piece. This cultivates credibility in the therapist and the IFS model, enabling increased trust and positive risk-taking in the therapeutic environment.

Approved for 3.0 CEU by CSL toward IFS certification & recertification.

Approved for 3.0 CEU by NBCC & ASWB.

Prerequisite: 20 hours of IFS workshops.

  1. Learn at least one way to shift a client's attention to their internal experience.
  2. Learn at least 3 dimensions of internal experience and their constituent elements.
  3. Understand the technique of back-filling IFS concepts after leading the client to experience them.
