Event Description

IFS is not only a healing modality for trauma, but it’s also a paradigm for improving your overall therapeutic skills. To be able to know yourself from the inside out, to be connected to and take responsibility for your own parts as well as be open and compassionate toward clients, will remarkably transform your clinical practice. Since 1992, I’ve been working in the field of trauma. I was fortunate to have been taught by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a world-renowned trauma expert. After becoming a psychiatrist at the Trauma Center, under the direction of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, I was exposed to many severely traumatized people and quickly learned traditional therapy was not effective. One decade later, I met Dr. Richard Schwartz, the founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS). That’s when I quickly discovered that IFS is one of the most popular, new, and effective evidence-based treatment techniques to heal emotional wounds - the wounds that prevent clients from moving forward in therapy. Through IFS, I have healed my own trauma, helped my clients overcome their painful life experiences and taught countless therapists how to do the same. Over 5-days, I will immerse you in my proven techniques on how to: • apply IFS into your clinical practice step-by-step • maximize your clinical outcomes with trauma-informed IFS techniques rooted from neuroscience • successfully overcome even the most complex traumas and its common co-morbidities, including anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive behavior and more Please come join me at the beautiful Sedona Mago Retreat Center. There will be additional time set aside to rest, rejuvenate, heal, connect with nature and get to know yourself and your parts better, so you can help your clients heal from the inside out. I’m looking forward to seeing you in Sedona!
