IFS Unconference: a place to learn, exchange and connect about IFS

About this event

Internal Family Systems (IFS) has been trying to get “out of the therapy room” for years now. Yet, the majority of events (e.g. conferences and courses) that educate and develop IFS are strictly and only for those professionally certified in the practice. We believe IFS can only fulfil its therapeutic, socio-cultural potential if it spreads its wings to the everyday and the everyone. We are here to make it happen, hopefully with your participation. 

WHAT

A online gathering of Internal Family Systems enthusiasts, ranging from those ‘curious to learn more’, those actively integrating IFS into their day-to-day activities, professions & inner work (e.g. IFS-based yoga or art), to those actively providing IFS to others via therapy and coaching.

An opportunity to take part in self-organised participatory group and focused sessions, to meet people interested in existing and emergent IFS topics ranging from “IFS and coaching” to “IFS and parenting”, to “IFS informed cooking” (the sky is the limit!)

We will all be sharing experiences, teaching, learning, practicing, and simply connecting with one another. You can expect workshops, panels, brainstorms, and hangouts. Anything really! What happens is up to all of us.

This gathering will be an unconference, a type of an event based on Open Space Technology. We feel it is a model that applies very well to the IFS model: the event takes the role of the Self, allowing for exploring and integrating different flavours of parts and sessions.

WHEN

Date: Oct 9th 2022

Schedule: The event happens from 5pm to 10pm CET / 11am to 4pm EST.

MORE

Our last unconference brought together a myriad of practitioners and IFS enthusiasts, ranging from game designers, trauma therapists, to those using IFS to support their psychedelic experiences. Among other modules, we held a live IFS session, shared discussions about how to do peer-based IFS, and played a participatory game about harnessing crowd intuition. We are beyond curious to find out what this next gathering will bring.

An unconference, or Open Space Technology based event, is a semi structured event format without a fixed top-down program. Typically, the program is created by the attendees at the beginning of the meeting. Anyone who wants to initiate a discussion on a topic can claim a time and a space. Some unconference sessions (for example at FooCamp or BarCamp) are led by the participant who suggested its topic; other unconference sessions are basically open discussions of the session topic.

We believe that this format is not only aligned with the IFS model (e.g Whoever comes are the right people / parts, it’s safe to leave a space anytime, etc), but also promotes one of our key missions, which is which is to source and exchange knowledge between people (whether advanced practitioners of other therapeutic modalities OR persons who learned via personal experiences and experiments. Among the rest, you can expect workshops, brainstorms, IFS sessions, and more. You can find out more by checking out the format description on our website. We hope to see you at the event!
