Internal Family Systems is a type of psychotherapy that concentrates on a client’s internal “parts” and “Self.” EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and the IFS (Internal Family Systems) model share a common treatment method. Integrating the two can help improve the efficacy of both modalities in treating complex trauma.

“If you provide EMDR therapy, join our sessions to learn more about Integrating Internal Family Systems into your EMDR Practice,” the company’s rep stated.

“Those looking for EMDR online training courses can also check our website for various EMDR training lessons,” they added.
