The Spirit-led Self: Healing Clients Using the Internal Family Systems Model
Do you have clients that often allow their emotions and negative beliefs to dictate their lives? Many people carry burdens of guilt, anger, anxiety, self-criticism and low self-worth that detrimentally impact their relationships, occupations, and their ability to live in a state of peace and well-being. Internal Family Systems is an evidenced-based and effective modality for healing the parts of a client that carry unhealed burdens deriving from negative experiences or traumas. Course participants will learn how to connect more deeply with the burdened parts of their clients, helping to reduce their overwhelming emotions. Through the IFS model and the compassionate presence of the Holy Spirit, deep healing and transformation can take place in the client’s internal system, allowing for more calm, clarity and confidence in their daily lives.
