The Buddha as an IFS Therapist
Flint Sparks, PhD
Siddhartha Gautama was interested in one fundamental question: How can we truly understand human suffering and how can we help end suffering for all beings? Through dedicating his entire life to spiritual practice he eventually had a shattering insight that resolved this question. In doing so, he became the Buddha, the Enlightened One. He taught what he had discovered and suggested that his followers engage in meditation practices to demonstrate, by their own experience, that liberation of the human heart and mind was possible. As IFS practitioners, we share this core question of the Buddha: How can we find freedom from unnecessary suffering for ourselves and for others? What if the Buddha had used the language of IFS? How would his teachings have sounded? Please join us in sharing the resonance of these transformative teachings and the profound possibility inherent in each.
 
The Way of Radical Compassion: The Spiritual Paths of Jesus and IFS
Frank Rogers, PhD
Contrary to historical development, Jesus did not intend to found a religion. He was a spiritual teacher who taught a profoundly transformative path of personal healing and social restoration. At the core of his spiritual path was a vision of radical compassion rooted in contemplative encounters with an all-inclusive compassionate Source and embodied in compassionate action that extends toward all—one’s self, one’s neighbor, even one’s enemies—in ways that invite interpersonal healing and accountable reconciliation. The spiritual path of Jesus is profoundly harmonious with the spiritual path of IFS. This plenary summarizes the mutually enhancing connections between them.

Managing and Connecting Inner and Outer Conflict: Integration of IFS and Conflict Resolution Theory and Practice
Leonard L. Riskin, JD
This presentation will explore, through a brief case study, the potential benefits and challenges of integrating IFS and conflict resolution practices, primarily in the context of negotiation, with an eye toward the practices of lawyers and other conflict resolution professionals.

Mediation, Multiple Minds,and the Negotiation Within
David Hoffman, JD
Mediators, like most people, encounter ambivalence all the time. We encounter it in ourselves and, of course, we see it in the people who come to us with their conflicts. It is a rare dispute in which the parties do not pursue settlement while simultaneously resisting it. David Hoffman will talk about the applicability of IFS concepts in mediation—in particular, as a means of helping people in conflict understand their own ambivalence about settlement and resolution, and also as a technique that enables mediators to access their Self energy and maintain their curiosity,
compassion, and courage on the fire of conflict.
 
Introducing IFS to an Urban School System
Gail Tomala, MA, MSMFT, PhD
What began as a focused effort to introduce IFS to physically aggressive middle-school boys in an urban preK-8 school in Hartford, Connecticut, has evolved into a long-term plan to introduce the IFS Model to the entire school community. Plans involve teaching IFS strategies to students and their families, ongoing IFS training for teachers, and the introduction of IFS activities in select
classrooms where MFTs will work side by side with teachers. Examples of IFS parts work and expressions of Self-leadership from students and teachers will be shared.

In this book, Goulding and Schwartz offer an important addition to the increasingly popular and practical focus on resources upon which adult survivors of childhood abuse draw to get through traumatic and challenging experiences - resources which, today, continue to be available as essential tools in masterful living.

In it, he has expanded our understanding of working with parts - in both client and therapist alike - and added to the means by which these parts may be involved in the therapeutic journey in positive and creative ways.

BOOK - "Freedom from Your Inner Critic"
Jay Earley, PhD

We've all heard the voice of the inner critic—that part of us that judges us, shames us, and makes us feel inadequate. "You don't want to give in to the Critic, and it doesn't really work to fight against it," explains Dr. Jay Earley. "But there is a way to transform it into an invaluable ally." With Freedom from Your Inner Critic, Dr. Earley and psychotherapist Bonnie Weiss present a self-therapy approach for uncovering the psychological roots of our self-sabotaging inner voices and restoring our sense of worthiness. Filled with insights, case studies, and practical self-therapy exercises, this breakthrough book explores:

  • How to connect with your Inner Critic through the groundbreaking approach of Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy
  • The seven varieties of the Inner Critic and their positive intent
  • Healing your Criticized Child that is hurt by your Inner Critic
  • Awakening your Inner Champion—the antidote to the influence of your Inner Critic
  • How to transform your Inner Critic and learn to love yourself
  • How our self-confidence, motivation, and courage improve when we are free from our Inner Critics
