Introduction to Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) Workshop

Presenter:  Daphne M. Fatter, Ph.D.


Developed by Richard Schwartz, Ph.D. 40 years ago, Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS) is now an evidenced-based practice for depression, generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. In this workshop, Dr. Fatter will review the conceptual framework of IFS including basic assumptions of IFS, goals of the model, and research to date. Clinicians will learn a road map for steps in doing IFS therapy. This workshop will include a guided experiential exercise for therapists to begin to identify their own parts to demonstrate the model experientially. Applications of IFS in clinical work and case examples using IFS for trauma, common clinical issues, and working with marginalized populations will be discussed. Benefits, contraindications, risks, and limitations of IFS therapy will be addressed.


Daphne Fatter (she/her), PhD, is an IFS Certified licensed psychologist and an Approved IFS Clinical Consultant. She is also EMDR Certified and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant. With nearly two decades of experience, she specializes in trauma treatment, including PTSD, complex trauma, and grief. Dr. Fatter completed her doctorate at The Pennsylvania State University and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Trauma Center affiliated with Boston University School of Medicine under Dr. Bessel van der Kolk. She has authored works on trauma healing and is known for her insightful presentations worldwide.
