Deepen Core IFS Skills 

Create internal relationships using the 6 F's. This is a powerful way to begin the 'unblending' phase of IFS, externalize the inner experience, and help clients to better regulate their emotions.

 

Find the part or trailhead in and around your body. Understand where it needs your attention.

 

Focus In. Turn your attention inward, towards the part, sensation, or feeling, etc.  Be open, and curious, and begin to describe what you are noticing. 

Flesh out. Learn about the part. Learn to be curious and ask IFS-informed questions. 

Feel Towards. How do you feel towards the part, sensation, etc? Watch for Self qualities. Learn how to work with protectors. Different parts often need to feel heard and noticed.

 

Befriend the part by finding out more about it. Build internal cooperation. Indirect: Self to part. Direct: Part to a therapist. Learn more. 

Fear Finding. Find what the concerns are. What creates fear for this part that makes it act the way that it does?

Goals of IFS Therapy

  1. To liberate parts from roles they have been forced into, freeing them to be whom they were designed to be.

  2. To restore faith in the self and in Self-leadership.

  3. To re-harmonize the inner system.

  4. To encourage the client to become increasingly self-led in their interactions with the world.

The more self-led you become, the less afraid you are to act in a way that's going to actually bring more harmony.
