Both treatment approaches deeply appreciate the dysfunctional impact these inner schemas will then have on how subsequent experiences are organized and interpreted. Both schools contend that individuals who have suffered at the hands of their parents will continue to re-enact their unresolved childhood dramas throughout their lives unless they have an opportunity to process and integrate the unmastered experiences. And both are “depth models” of the mind that offer the opportunity for this belated mastery. But their “methods” diverge slightly. Whereas Psychodynamic Psychotherapy focuses on the gradual and spontaneous emergence of insight into the unconscious conflicts that have been interfering with actualization of the patient’s potential, IFS accesses the hidden conflicts by way of a “technical modification” specifically designed to decrease the patient’s repression so that unconscious material (including “exiled” parts of the Self) can be expeditiously brought to the fore. Ultimately, IFS aims to promote development of a more harmonious relationship between these dissociated and conflictual “parts” of the Self – the ultimate goal being the promotion of integration, healing, and empowerment. When Psychodynamic Psychotherapists become acquainted with, and develop some expertise with, the more directive and focused techniques advocated by IFS Practitioners, they will be surprised to discover how quickly the patient’s inner resistances can be disarmed and immediate access gained to the patient’s unconscious IFS6 | 6 CE/CME Credits
