Celebrating the Unburdened System
IFS Institute Certificated Workshop
8 May 2021

Teaching modalities:

Experiential exercises 
6.0 continuing education hours total

Program Description:

This 6-hour workshop takes a fresh look at why all parts are welcome and how our parts can step forwardand work together. Participants will become more skilled at recognizing the power of common IFS language to create unity or divisiveness when working with parts, Self, and burdens. The Unburdened System Mandala will be presented as a vision for parts as their gifts emerge.   Special emphasis is given to the steps of the model post-unburdening to strengthen and ground a part’s transformation and its contribution in daily life.  A combination of lecture, demonstration and group experientials will deepen an acceptance of parts as full sub-personalities with qualities of Self at their core. 

Learning Objectives:  by the end of this workshop participants will be able to…

1. Use the Unburdened System Mandala to recognize the Self energy inside parts.
2. Experience the energy of Self and parts on a spectrum.
3. Learn strategies for helping clients strengthen and hold progress made in therapy with emphasis on post-unburdening steps of Invitation and Integration.
