IFS-EMDR Consultation Groups

These groups focus on IFS-Informed EMDR, as elaborated by Bruce in self-paced courses available at, as well as live experiential trainings taught through Syzygy Institute.  There is often a heavy emphasis on development of IFS case conceptualization abilities and learning the Discovery process to work with blended protectors (also outlined in courses mentioned above) in addition to the numerous other ways of interweaving and overlapping IFS with EMDR. Memory Reconsolidation via Coherence Therapy is often referenced and incorporated. All this occurs in a safe and supportive small group environment.

Groups typically are organized as four prepaid (approximately) monthly 90 minute sessions meeting the same time and day of week. Most of the time, the membership is limited to five members. Members check-in individually in the beginning of each meeting to identify their preferred focus (case, skill, concept, issue, etc.), a starting topic is chosen and we attempt to get through everyone's topic, if possible. There is no requirement to have a topic, and many times a member (or two) is happy to learn from the topics chosen by others.


By the end of the series of four prepaid sessions, members are typically invited to renew membership for a next series of four sessions meeting (approximately) monthly the same time and day of week. When a member opts not to renew, this results in an opening, which is filled from a waiting list.
