EPISODE #73 - We are thrilled to launch our first Internal Family Systems Studio Circle in July! It's called "IFS for Your Daily Life," and it's a live 4-week workshop led by IFS Institute-trained Justin Wilford, PhD, and his expert therapist team Jenny Walters and Alicia Wuth. They'll cover the foundational model of IFS, the big ideas, and most importantly the real-world, on-the-ground, life-changing practices you can do to bring IFS self-healing into your daily life. You'll leave the course with more clarity around your internal system, a better connection with your true self, and sustainable practices to continue your own self-healing work.
If you’re already a member of Yes Collective, then you can join this studio circle today for no additional cost. And if you’re not yet a member of Yes Collective, then come on in! As a member you get immediate access to all our live Studio Circles - right now, as of late May, we’re in the middle of an amazing Circle on Authentic Relating. And in June we’re going to launch one on thriving as a highly sensitive person (HSP).
If all this talk about internal family systems is new to you, then today’s podcast is going to blow your mind. If you’re old hat with IFS, then you’re still going to love what we have in store. Today’s guest is Dr. Frank Anderson, psychiatrist, therapist, author speaker and trauma specialist. He did his residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, worked with Bessel van der Kolk at the Trauma Center, is the former director of the Foundation for Self Leadership, a senior trainer of Internal Family Systems therapy and is an advisor to the International Association of Trauma Professionals.
We are so excited to have Frank on because he’s a leader in Internal Family Systems therapy, and IFS is a major part of what we do here at Yes Collective. We had him on last year to talk about IFS and parenting, and we couldn’t wait to have him back to dive into other IFS topics like relationships, grief, forgiveness, and spirituality.
