About the Event
Join us for a FREE online interactive talk on ACT through an IFS lens with ACBS SoCal chapter president, Dr. Michelle Le-Chau. Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a model of therapy developed in the mid-1980s by Dr. Richard Schwartz, which emerged out of the observation that clients sometimes experience subpersonalities that come into internal conflict when dealing with challenges. Thus, in IFS, human beings are understood as being comprised of a core Self with many different parts, just as a family is understood as a unit that is comprised of a number of members. As in family systems therapy, IFS does not seek to rid the Self of any of its "problematic" parts, but rather seeks to help it transform via consideration of them.
Detecting some overlap with ACT in these ideas? So are we. Join us in exploring how both ACT and IFS support a “move-towards” movement in the service of living a Self-led (or values-led) life.
1. Identify the 2 goals of IFS therapy.
2. Identify the 8 C’s of Self.
3. Learn the 6 F’s (Roadmap of IFS) to get to know Parts.
4. Differentiate a Part from Self through mindfulness and acceptance practices.
This event will take place on Zoom. Note: CEUs will not be available for this talk.
