Internal Family Systems (IFS) can be one of the most compassionate and gentle approaches for addressing trauma, addiction, depression, and anxiety. By building on the original IFS model and integrating the ketamine-assisted therapy protocol, participants in this program will deepen and elevate their practice. This training incorporates anti-oppressive, social justice, and multicultural considerations, with special emphasis on serving marginalized communities, including the LGBTQ and trans communities.
Using the IFS protocol, participants will learn tools to minimize harm and prioritize safety throughout all stages of the therapeutic process. They will learn how to connect with and attend to their own parts, as well as facilitate the healing of their clients’ parts.
Participants will gain a historical and foundational understanding of ketamine and its application within a therapeutic model. They will also learn to identify the three-pronged process of Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) — preparation, dosing, and integration — and understand its importance in sustaining relief from mental health symptoms.
