“Jaclyn did an amazing job of holding the group and attending to everyone’s needs as the host. I loved all of her experiential offerings – including the Somatic IFS-Informed yoga. Her closing was the best one I have ever attended in a training without question. Much appreciation and gratitude.”

Q: Are the IFS courses offered by Collective Self Energy the same as the IFS Trainings offered by the IFS Institute?

No. Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 IFS training programs offered through the IFS Institute provide comprehensive training and experience in the IFS therapeutic model. Upon completion of each level of training thru the IFS-I, participants are prepared to work as IFS therapists, having gained a breadth of knowledge and understanding about the way in which IFS enhances their lives, the lives of their clients, and others. Other IFS events and activities – such as IFS courses offered through Collective Self Energy – are generally shorter and/or serve as very basic introductions to aspects of the IFS model. The courses offered through Collective Self Energy are intended to inform therapists, coaches and medical providers about the model by providing them with a basic introduction to the model, while they wait to get into a Level 1 training program through the IFS Institute. We designed our intro courses specifically to support and empower those who are patiently waiting to get into a Level 1 Training. We do offer some courses that are facilitated by Lead IFS Trainers and are thus approved thru the IFS-Institute. These courses are for those who have taken a Level 1 training thru the IFS Institute, and CE credits for IFS certification will usually be offered in these cases. Please inquire.
