Other Takeaways

Working with a Lead Trainer for my own therapy allowed me to not only dive deeply into my system, but also take notes on how to work with clients. 

Being a Program Assistant with Chris Burris for Level 1 gave me another view of the model and allowed me to refresh and deepen my understanding of IFS. I would do it again in a heartbeat if I could get into a training!

Being a member of the Atlanta Peer Group for years allowed me to do case consultation with an IFS lens, hear how other practitioners used the model and keep my skills fresh with dyad work.
