About the Program:
The Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) Through A Cultural Lens (IFS) is an integrative approach to individual psychotherapy. It combines system thinking with the view that the mind is made up of relatively discrete subpersonalities, each with its own unique viewpoint and qualities. IFS uses systems psychology, particularly as developed for family therapy, to understand how these collections of subpersonalities are organized. We will examine Through A Cultural Lens.
