IFS is an extremely powerful and user-friendly form of therapy created by Richard Schwartz, PhD. It is non-pathologizing, spiritually-oriented, excellent for trauma, and lends itself naturally to self-therapy.
IFS understands that our psyches consists of sub-personalities, called “parts,” which make up a kind of inner system. Parts often get into conflicts with each other and act in dysfunctional ways in an attempt to protect us from pain. All of this happens largely outside our awareness, and when we do see what is happening, we frequently try to banish the parts that are causing the difficulties. Yet this is hardly ever solves the problem. IFS, on the other hand, teaches us to relate to our parts from the “Self” with openness, curiosity, and compassion, not judgment, which allows each part to reveal its hidden agenda and the pain it defends against. This paves the way for healing and transformation, which can be accomplished by following a clear sequence of steps.
