Testimonials:

“Nancy is an exceptionally gifted therapist and teacher. Her capacity to synthesize and clearly explain theoretical material and her generous use of case examples provides a wonderful introduction to IFS. Nancy’s warm and open approach creates room for rich cross-pollination among the clinicians who take her course and creates a highly stimulating learning environment. I found this to be an extremely enjoyable and rewarding educational experience. I enthusiastically recommend her course!”

- Amy Zuckerman LCSW
“I highly recommend this course to any trauma therapist interested in learning the basics of Internal Family Systems therapy.  Through a combination of didactics and clinical demonstrations, Nancy Bravman provides a clear and accessible way to understand the principles and practice of IFS.  As an EMDR therapist I found this course invaluable, so much so that I elected to take it a second time time to deepen my understanding of how IFS can be used to lessen defensiveness, identify EMDR targets, and facilitate trauma processing when the client or therapist feels stuck.  Whether you are interested in learning the fundamentals of IFS or preparing to take IFS training, this course is a must.”
