Your donation to the Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit incorporated in the U.S. (EIN 20- 1318139), is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Your support will make it possible for us to catalyze a number of short-term projects and longer-term initiatives in the areas of IFS research, education, and advocacy. The Board has identified a select few strategic priorities in June 207 to guide the Foundation’s work over the next several years. Your support for these projects is critical. Thank you for your continued donations.


Highest-Priority Objectives & Projects

1. Research on Treating PTSD with IFS: Thanks to funding from the community, the Foundation has sponsored two pilot research studies examining the efficacy of IFS in treating complex traumatic experiences (completed) and physiological effects of IFS on client and therapist (ongoing). Our next challenge is to build on encouraging results of the former to catalyze, support, or inspire a large-scale randomized-controlled study probing the efficacy of IFS as a treatment choice for clients with PTSD. Considering the great need for PTSD treatments among war veterans in particular and increasing acts of violence in our communities, this is an important priority for the Foundation.

Complementing this effort, the Foundation will continue to: (a) Expand its new online searchable IFS repository, to be revealed in Fall 2017; (b) Seek to support smaller IFS studies, brain-imaging studies among them; and (c) Engage in outreach efforts to promote IFS among academics and researchers in higher education, our “IFS Research Fellowship Awards Program” serving as one such effort.

2. IFS in Schools: In an ambitious attempt to promote IFS notions of Parts and Self and expand self-awareness among students as a way to usher in greater social harmony and inner resilience, we will be launching educational programs to introduce teachers and parents to concepts of Self leadership as one strategy for reaching students. Such an effort builds on what a few members of the community have started doing and will be launched through a one-year Pilot Program at two middle schools in the city of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota.

The Program will include both a series of IFS sessions for teachers, leading them to discuss ways to infuse IFS concepts and language in their interactions with students, as well as a pre-/post- program study to help us understand the effects of this program on teachers and students. Results of this study will help the Board expand the program to multiple sites.

Parallel to this program, the Foundation will co-lead with Education 4 Peace a global initiative, working with other leading strategic partners, seeking to promote emotional healing and well-being through self—awareness among youth, starting in sports and branching out to other areas of youth activity.

3. Service to Communities in Need: The Foundation is committed to bringing IFS as a healing modality and a process for resolving conflicts to marginalized groups that might not otherwise have access to it. We are engaged in conversations with CSL and community agencies to provide wholesale IFS training support for professional therapists at mental health agencies serving at-risk groups and individuals meeting certain criteria with interest in sustainability. Among them: a community agency, a VA center, and a nonprofit organization. The intent is to bring IFS, now evidence-based, to such agencies and through them to clients they serve in urban settings.

Additionally, the Foundation is considering other strategic priorities for serving the community through IFS, among them: deploying IFS therapists to areas of crises, legal mediation, and businesses.
