This class teaches you how to use Internal Family Systems, a powerful form of psychotherapy. This class is not psychotherapy, nor is it intended to replace psychotherapy or health care. The exercises you will do in this class may touch deep places inside you that can cause psychological, emotional, physical, or behavioral reactions. This reaction can occur unexpectedly and interrupt your sense of safety in a learning environment, despite efforts that are made to minimize this from happening. For some people, these reactions may be hard to deal with.
IFS is a very safe and respectful form of inner work, but for a few people this class may not provide the kind of individual attention and structure needed to feel balanced and safe while working on deep personal issues.
This survey is designed to help you think through how you will have the best experience in this class and give me a sense that you've made an informed decision and are ready for this work. If needed, outside of class, you and I will talk through any prior experiences you've had in IFS groups that have been difficult.
If you would like to discuss whether the class is safe for you, feel free to email or call Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-629-1949 ext 2.
