Approved for 7 EMDRIA Credits
Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS) offers a tangible means of exploring the self. The brain also has “parts” and is its own family system. The Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP) offers a tangible explanation of how the parts of the brain work together to take in, digest and store information along with input from chemicals and the nervous systems. Understanding the role of EMDR and IFS is important in order to normalize a clients experiences and symptoms and offer options for a clear path to healing that are efficient and effective. Utilizing mindful resources for “parts” (IFS) and processing stuck experiences (EMDR) not only helps the brain heal but it offers the client a better understanding of self, which allows them to nurture and work with self and provide a holistic healing experience. We will accomplish these tasks via discussion, handouts, practicum and a client video.
