Do you struggle to document your IFS Sessions?
Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy is an approach to psychotherapy that helps people heal by accessing and loving their protective and wounded inner parts. Beth Rontal is a Level 2 trained IFS therapist who has manager parts that enjoyed figuring out how to document IFS so that non-IFS folks can understand what we’re doing.
- Does a critical part of your personality second guess everything you write, worried that IFS jargon may not pass an audit?
- Does the Perfectionist part of your personality procrastinate thinking there’s one right way, and you don’t know it?
Documenting IFS does not need to be a sword fight between critical managers and avoiding firefighters.
Using IFS jargon can put more attention on the therapeutic technique and less on the client. You can document your work with a minimum of jargon so that others involved in the client’s care can understand what’s happening in your sessions. The IFS Intervention Prompts are written to correspond with the 6 F’s of identifying, assessing, and working with protector parts and unburdening exiles.
These 43 prompts will help you document your IFS sessions with confidence.
