About IFS Trainings
An expert training staff leads each program. Participants learn both IFS theory and technique, gaining the knowledge and skills they need to understand and implement the IFS model with individuals, couples, children, families and groups. As Richard Schwartz, PhD, LMFT, and developer of the IFS model notes,

“IFS is more than a therapeutic technique. It is a
conceptual framework and practice for developing
love for ourselves and each other.”

The Center for Self Leadership welcomes people from diverse walks of life into its training programs. While members of the professional mental health care community are the trainings’ natural and predominant constituency, we encourage others, such as pastoral counselors, dance and art therapists, students of the healing arts and sciences, body workers and those from the professional public to consider IFS trainings so they, too, can incorporate IFS into their lives and livelihoods. Ultimately, anyone seeking a profound personal or professional growth experience who has a genuine commitment to learning IFS may apply.

Training program graduates using IFS within their practices report enormous satisfaction for both themselves and their clients.

In addition, private practitioners who implement the IFS model note that their referral base has broadened and their practices have improved overall.
