Internal Family Systems

One of the ways that I work with my clients in my practice is through the lens of Internal Family Systems (IFS). This is a theory that has been developed by Dr. Richard Schwartz and has grown wildly in popularity over the past several decades. The main premise of IFS is that individuals possess a multiplicity of "parts" within their psyche, each with its own unique characteristics, emotions, and motivations. These parts can be conceptualized as distinct personalities or sub-personalities within the individual's internal system. The goal of IFS therapy is to help individuals develop a harmonious relationship with these internal parts, facilitating communication, understanding, and, ultimately, integration. Through this process, individuals can achieve greater self-awareness, self-compassion, and emotional healing. The underlying belief is that each part holds valuable insights and wisdom, and by acknowledging and honoring them, individuals can achieve a greater sense of wholeness and well-being.

Should you want to learn more about IFS on your own, I highly recommended reading "No Bad Parts" by Dr. Richard Schwartz. This is a great introduction to the theory written in layman's terms.
