PARTS (Personal Awareness & Recovery Through Self)
Internal Family Systems Intensive
Back to All Workshops
Emotional Trauma Workshop
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidence-based treatment modality which relates our internal world to a relational system similar to a family. Developed by Meadows Senior Fellow Dr. Richard Schwartz, this IFS founder is also the founder of the Center for Self Leadership and adjunct faculty at Harvard’s department of psychology.
PARTS is a non-pathologizing and empowering IFS intensive that focuses on the internal relationship between parts of the SELF which are adaptations from adverse experiences. Parts function like subpersonalities, holding aspects of our identity that work to gain influence within the internal system, and can be self-defeating. These parts develop a complexity of interactions among themselves. Once the parts are processed, the system returns to a state of being self-assured and relaxed, allowing the SELF to lead. Those who complete this workshop are better able to listen, respond to feedback, establish healthy boundaries, and build self-competence for any future adverse experiences.
