5 training days

This five-day course is designed to help you master the skills needed to treat trauma and dissociation. You’ll learn about:

  • Identifying and working with traumatized parts.
  • Working with clients with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) and attachment traumas.
  • Working with extreme parts, including self-harming, suicidal, substance-abusing, dissociative and shame-based parts.
  • Unburdening exiles, updating the system and re-establishing trust in Self.
  • Integrating other therapies with IFS.

This training course also allows you to explore the parts of yourself that are activated when you work with trauma—in the safe, nurturing environment of the course. You’ll be helped to:

  • Understand the particular components of the IFS model that are relevant to the treatment of trauma.
  • Apply IFS techniques when working with dissociative clients/ dissociative parts.
  • Take advantage of experiential learning to foster your own personal growth and development. 
  • Deepen your therapeutic use of Self to engage clients with traumatised parts safely. 

Note that you need to attend all five training days in order to receive a certificate of completion.
Pre-requisite: IFS Level 1 completion is a requisite for this training, ongoing supervision and IFS practice and/or particular interest in trauma for your client cohort.

Dr. Anderson began his journey by earning his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of Illinois in 1985, followed by his M.D. degree from Rush University Medical School in 1989. He completed his residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. After graduation, he stayed on as a clinical instructor at Harvard while working as a staff psychiatrist at the Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute under the direction of Bessel van der Kolk.
     In 1994, Dr. Anderson launched his private practice, centered on the treatment of trauma, including single-incident trauma, complex trauma, dissociative identity disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Providing compassionate care, he also specializes in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues. Patients benefit from Dr. Anderson's psychopharmacology expertise as well as his training in sensory motor psychotherapy (SP) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
     Dr. Anderson’s professional focus expanded in 2004 after he met his mentor and friend Richard Schwarz, Ph.D., founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS), a model that combines systems thinking and multiplicity of the mind. Dr. Anderson learned to integrate the IFS model into his passion for psychopharmacology, neurobiology and trauma therapy; He and Dr. Schwartz currently teach IFS, Trauma and Neuroscience, a five-day intensive training for therapists. In 2013, Dr. Anderson was named chairman of the Foundation for Self Leadership (FSL)—a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing IFS via research, scholarships and outreach.
     Today, Dr. Anderson serves as FSL executive director and continues to provide consultation, individual therapy and couples therapy at his office in Concord, Mass. Additionally, he maintains an active career as a speaker, teacher, consultant, writer and researcher who travels the globe, often conducting seminars, workshops and training programs. He also remains affiliated with the Center for Self Leadership and Trauma Center at the Justice Resource Institute.
