ONLINE Event - IFS and Parenting with Frank Anderson, MD

About this Event

For all its joys, parenting is often a rollercoaster of challenges. Even when parents are at the top of their game, the most routine curveballs—quarreling siblings, a child’s public meltdown, or a phone call from a teacher—can trigger unresolved shame, guilt, anger or disconnection in parents.

But the Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach can help parents more fully:

  • Understand and heal their own wounds that their children inevitably evoke
  • Allow the parent to better set healthy, non-controlling limits
  • Create a more nurturing family environment

As both a seasoned clinician, and a parent who has been at the forefront of developing and adapting IFS for multiple settings, Frank Anderson, MD, can help you with parenting struggles. IFS helps parents get to the real root of the issues for them.

This daylong workshop is appropriate for parents and practitioners who support parents. You’ll get help through exploring both attachment and parenting styles, and IFS interventions that Frank will share with you that really work to help heal the underlying parental trigger.

Join us for a day of exploring the foundations of Internal Family Systems as well as adapting and applying them to your life as a parent or to your work with parent clients. Learn to:

  • Talk to children about difficult subjects by using “part of me language,” which cultivates honesty, clarity, and calm within both the parent and the child.
  • Explore your or clients' own reactive moments compassionately, allowing them to have empathy for their experience by exploring the positive intention of their inner parts with compassion and respond to triggers with more empathy, using dialogues with inner parts
  • Co-parent in a way that’s supportive, collaborative, and leads to a fuller expression of mature selfhood
  • Recover from the inevitable moments when they “lose it” and take the necessary steps to repair with fuller awareness
  • Address Mental Health issues in teens from the Parent Self perspective.
