Dear Colleague,

When your complex or unstable clients disown, despise or dissociate from vulnerable parts of themselves...

A single modality approach can fall short, leaving you and your clients in a vicious cycle of their suicidality, self-harm, addiction and other self-destructive behaviours.

One thing we both know to be true from our collective seven decades of experience is that complex trauma treatment must be integrative. And clients living with complex trauma – and all its iterations – need nuanced solutions.

We have dedicated our careers to training clinicians like you on the most effective tools for working with clients’ trauma-related parts: Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST).

And we’ve come together, for the first time ever, in an online self-study like this where you’ll see us work with the same and similar clients using our different approaches to treat complex trauma.

You’ll learn to master each modality and work through contrasting and complementary approaches so you can create integrated treatment plans customized to your clients’ many different parts.

You’ll be able to better help clients overcome extreme symptoms, repair injuries of traumatized parts, and find lasting relief from hopelessness, shame and self-blame with our step-by-step experiential training.

And, ultimately, you’ll walk away with the confidence and skills’ readiness to be an expert-level trauma practitioner.

That’s not all: we’ve included 4 FREE bonuses (£163.78 value) so you’ll have more exercises and tips that have been instrumental to our own success.

We look forward to seeing you in the course! – Janina Fisher, PhD and Frank Anderson, MD
