Treating Complex Trauma With Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Most psychotherapy methods believe that there are "parts" that are pathological. NOT in the internal family system (IFS). In the IFS, the idea of the diversity of thoughts is normal. Every part has good intentions and every part has value. Also for injured victims.

In terms of trauma care, IFS trauma treatment differs from traditional, phase-oriented care. Instead of building resources for the client before processing the traumatic memory, he welcomes extreme symptoms early on, learns their positive defensive intentions, and is given permission to access the traumatic injury.

IFS also differs from traditional attachment therapy and both assess a therapeutic relationship. However, IFS continues to maintain the connection between the "self" client and its parts as the main solution. IFS is helpful for many mental problems nowadays.

IFS is led by Dr. van der Kolk, the world's leading trauma specialist, and is a treatment modality that all physicians should know. Nearly all clients with a history of trauma have innate abilities that will help them improve their sanity if they listen to their part.

IFS does exactly that. IFS is an evidence-based approach for physicians who treat clients who have experienced trauma. Once you see it in action, you'll want to incorporate it into your practice.
