Last updated 5 May 2024

Join author of Transitioning to Internal Family Systems Therapy: A Companion for Therapists and Practitioners and editor of Internal Family Systems Therapy: Supervision and Consultation as she explores orienting to a new modality, whether IFS or any other.

Over two separate workshops, Emma will lead you in highlighting and exploring multiple areas of practice potentially impacted when someone trained in an existing modality (or more than one) orients to a new modality.

In addition, as a certified IFS therapist and approved IFS clinical consultant, Emma will share the concept of a professional updating of one’s inner team members, parts, or subpersonalities.

Learning Objective Participants Can Expect From This Event

  • Recognising when a part of you (or your supervisee) may need an update about IFS and Self.
  • Learn or be reminded of some of the common protector fears regarding making more space for Self’s presence.
  • Learn of at least four areas that can feature in negotiating with a professional’s inner team member who is struggling to adjust to the new modality due to loyalty to previous ways of working.

IFS and You: Orienting to a New Modality Workshop Part 1 with Emma Redfern

Presenter

Emma Redfern

Emma Redfern has been a psychotherapist for 20 years. Her initial training was Humanistic Integrative. However, over the years, she has become more specialist and considers herself a trauma therapist, having trained in EMDR (Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy). She now works solely online in private or independent practice.

She began transitioning to becoming a supervisor in 2010 and was certified by BACP in 2014. After completing all 3 levels of IFS training, she began offering IFS supervision and became an Approved IFS Clinical Consultant in January of 2020.

The idea that she could produce a book on IFS supervision came to her in January of 2019 and the multi-author book Internal Family Systems Therapy: Supervision and Consultation was published in August 2022. When the pandemic lockdown hit in 2020, she used the space this provided to begin writing a second book Transitioning to Internal Family Systems Therapy: A Companion for Therapists and Practitioners which was completed in the summer of 2022 and published in April 2023. Both books are published by Routledge.

Emma has another multi-author book scheduled for publication later this year.
