A new communiqué from your Foundation for Self Leadership

We are pleased to share with you very brief updates about IFS-related developments taking place through the Foundation and other news of value to the community. This is our developing story as we, together, promote emotional healing and wellbeing further into the world through notions of IFS. 

Results of Foundation-funded Complex Trauma IFS Study presented at Trauma Conference

Hilary Hodgdon, PhD, (The Trauma Center at JRI) and PI of the reseach study presented a poster sharing some of its findings at a recent meeting of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (Chicago, November 9-11, 2017). 
During this feasibility study, 17 adult participants with histories of exposure to complex trauma received IFS treatment over 16 weeks (90-minute sessions).
Outcomes offer initial evidence that IFS treatments may "help alleviate symptoms of PTSD and comorbid conditions in a population showing considerable clinical complexity."

First pilot IFS teacher program/study launched
at two middles schools in MN

Managed by Jody Nelson, EdD, LMFT, and her team, a new teach-teachers-about-IFS program is now running at two inner-city middle schools (Minneapolis, MN, USA). Staff will be exposed to IFS and 16 teachers will go deeper during semi-monthly sessions for 10 months. They will explore how they may, through knowledge of parts and Self, enhance teaching and classroom interaction with students.
An independent rigorous evaluation is to be conducted in parallel to gather teacher-perceived outcomes (changes in perspectives, interactions with students, and student behaviors and attitudes),
