Healing Cultural Trauma with IFS: A Culturally Sensitive Approach



Despite an increased willingness in our profession to discuss issues of diversity, including race, sexuality, gender, class, etc., we still have a long way to go in addressing the traumatic effects of systemic oppression. As therapists, we can acknowledge and try to remediate these negative effects by providing culturally sensitive care for people who often feel unseen or misunderstood. Using the framework of Internal Family Systems (IFS), this recording offers practical skills to help heal the traumatic wounds of oppression. You’ll discover how to: 

  • Use the Intercultural Development Continuum with clients to explore how cultural perspectives impact communication and conflict style 
  • Apply the IFS model to help heal trauma, and acknowledge and own the parts of ourselves that become reactive when discussing issues of diversity 
  • Increase your ability to avoid microaggressions and help clients explore emotional wounds with culturally sensitive techniques including, “The U-turn” and “Unblending”
