Treating Complex Trauma with IFS: Kentucky Psychological Association
April 21 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
|Most modes of psychotherapy believe to have “parts” is pathological. NOT in Internal Family Systems (IFS). In IFS, the idea of the multiplicity of the mind is normal. Every part has a good intention, and every part has value. Even for trauma survivors. In the treatment of trauma, IFS differs from traditional phase-oriented treatments. Instead of starting with building resources in clients before processing traumatic memories, it welcomes extreme symptoms from the onset, learns about their positive protective intentions, and gets their permission to access the traumatic wounds.
