Chicago 2017: IFS, Gender, and Sexuality
“I would highly recommend Derek’s workshop for anyone serious about knowing their full potential. He is a sensitive, engaging and highly skilled facilitator who both models and teaches Self-leadership”
Dick Schwartz PhD – founder of IFS
Derek Scott’s presentation of “The Drive for Authenticity”, offers a compelling and thoughtful journey into challenging issues for gay and straight audiences alike. Derek’s ability to create a safe and welcoming learning environment allowed for my own personal exploration as well as enhanced my sensitivity for all of my clients. I would highly recommend this workshop for both IFS and non-IFS practitioners.

Derek is warm, wise, and delightful. His skilled, measured facilitation allowed me to absorb an uncommon – and especially useful – perspective on who we are as gendered and sexual beings. He imparted valuable information, created safety for experiential exploration, and allowed space for participants to share their own fresh insights with the group. Before the workshop was halfway over, I understood the positive impact upon me was going to last, and was going to keep growing. This turned out to be true. My self awareness and liberation is expanding, and I am better prepared to guide my clients experiencing confusion, hurt, and shame around issues of sex and gender. Highly recommended!

Derek is a superb workshop leader, bringing thoughtful insight and open-heartedness to his teaching. His workshop unfolds with a well-designed progression of exercises that allows the participants to feel comfortable and safe to express their feelings and experiences around sexuality and gender. Derek is very attuned to the shaming that many of us have absorbed because our ways of being and loving in the world are different from mainstream cultural expectations. He offers compassionate guidance to help heal our wounds. I have learned a lot from Derek, emotionally and intellectually, and highly recommend him!

Derek Scott is a dynamic, engaging, accessible, and highly competent presenter. He has a great ability to sense who his audience is, and can adjust his presentations as needed and accordingly. He uses humor and personal example to illustrate concepts and to help students integrate the material. He is organized and very professional.

Derek’s dynamic presenting style, gets you at hello! His creative workshop exercises help a participant to self-examine and discover parts of oneself with kindness and intrigue.
I was able to learn about aspects of myself that I hadn’t thought about in many years, and as it turns out, were happy that I reconnected with them again.
