Happy and peaceful holidays to you and yours

The Board of the Foundation for Self Leadership is inviting you to consider giving an end-of-year gift to the Foundation on behalf of advancing IFS research and advocacy within and beyond psychotherapy. We thank you if you have already donated; we’d love for you to consider placing the Foundation as one of your recipients of annual giving.
