Melbourne & Sydney Introductory Workshops

In these workshops you will immerse yourself in the Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) model of psychotherapy. The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of psychotherapy offers a clear, non-pathologizing, and empowering method of understanding human problems, as well as an innovative and enriching philosophy of practice that invites both therapist and client to enter into a transformational relationship in which healing can occur. Introductory and Ongoing Practice workshops create a supportive learning environment for didactic and experiential learning.


Participants in the Introductory Workshop will learn the basics of the IFS approach from the ground up. Suitable to professionals (therapists, psychologists, counsellors, social workers, health practitioners, and certified coaches) as well as those committed to their self-development. The Ongoing Practice offerings will be open to those who have completed the Introductory days, and wish to enhance and deepen their capacities
through working in small groups with an experienced facilitator.


Workshop fees for multi-day workshops includes materials, morning-afternoon tea, and lunch at each venue. For single and half-day events participants are invited to bring/buy and share their own small snacks and meals, though hot drinks usually supplied.

Details of the IFS model...

Founded by Richard Schwartz, PhD., the Internal Family Systems model (IFS), is a cutting edge psychotherapy approach that offers therapists a non-pathological conceptual framework for understanding the human psyche. IFS respectfully guides people toward lasting and profound transformation. IFS applies family systems principles and systemic techniques to working with inner parts of the person. It is widely used internationally in the treatment of trauma and severe diagnoses, as well as a wide variety of psychological issues and non-clinical applications such as business consulting and meditation practice. IFS offers therapists a way to make their practice more enjoyable and effective, and less effortful. It also helps them find and heal parts of themselves.


SAMHSA has recently added IFS to the US National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices rating it as “effective for improving general functioning and well-being,” and “promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms.”

2015 Networker Symposium keynote with Dick Schwartz (6 min excerpt)

In this clip from Richard Schwartz's keynote, "The Inner Game of Psychotherapy," he explains how the method he developed, Internal Family Systems (IFS), allows clients to be the primary agent in their healing process and rely less on the therapist as an attachment figure.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is the signature work of Richard Schwartz PhD, more at www.selfleadership.org


As a clinical treatment IFS is rated effective to improve general functioning and well-being by the US

National Registry for Evidence-based Programs and Practices as an evidence-based practice. In addition, it has been rated promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms. For more read here.
