IFS is Evidence-Based

Thirty years ago, IFS creator Richard Schwartz, PhD, listened to his clients describing the behaviors and fears of their most extreme parts. He found that the inner world of all his clients was characterized by parts who have a positive intent for the client but had taken on extreme roles in an effort to be safe. He also discovered that these extreme parts would become less disruptive and more cooperative once their concerns were addressed and they felt safer.

IFS views psychic multiplicity as the norm: we all have parts. In addition, every part has a good intention for the client, and every part has value. When clients listen to all their parts, they can heal their wounded parts.

Today, IFS, which has established a legacy of efficiency and effectiveness in treating many mental health issues, is being heralded by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk as a treatment that all clinicians should know.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Not Good as an Audiobook

I love psychology and audiobooks work best for me to learn and absorb. I am a huge fan of "The Body Keeps the Score", "Lost Connections", etc. I thought this would be a fun review of IFS and help me to revisit it. I was wrong. This is probably a very interesting workbook but as an audiobook it is extremely lacking, first book I've ever returned. If you think this is an interesting topic buy a hard copy or the kindle version.
