Testimonials & Reviews
travel around the world teaching IFS, I hear frequently from IFS clients who
have been using the DPMP and loving it. I also hear from IFS therapists that
they not only are having good results when their clients use it, but that they
are finding it helpful for their own parts work.
This book will deeply enhance your journey toward being Self-led.”
—Richard Schwartz, Ph.D.
Developer of IFS

Second edition coming in September 2017!
Melbourne Workshop: November 24th, 2017
In this one-day workshop, participants*
will be guided through learning how to map a system of parts (with Parts
Timelines and Parts Maps) for client sessions and get the basics of how to form
your unique Daily Parts Meditation Practice. The focus will be mapping and end
with an introduction to the DPMP, both of which will be very experiential, with
some didactic. Guided by examples, a live demo, and practice time, participants
will have gained experience of mapping a system and hopefully with curiosity of
mapping their own.
Parts Maps, Parts Timelines, and Daily Parts Meditation Practice are three of six tools Michelle developed out of her own in-depth IFS healing and need of deeper integration. Intention is on moving beyond the cursory “a part of me” and leaving no part behind, as one advances from the burdened system to the unburdened system and in maintaining strong Self to parts relationships for a Self-led life. Clinicians will discover that becoming a better IFS practitioner resides in knowing their systems well. See her book, Daily Parts Meditation Practice: A Journey of Embodied Integration for Clients and Therapists, available through the Center for Self Leadership's online bookstore.
* Open to those who have previously taken IFS workshops or

Internal Family Systems model - Evidence based practice
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 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.”
Some knowledge of IFS is assumed for these workshops.
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.
