Following on from last week’s video this is a longer introduction to Internal Family Systems (IFS) by Bruce Hersey.


This lovely animation called Finding Your Parts explains how IFS therapy works. It is a guide to “going inside” to explore your inner system of parts.

I first learned about IFS in Bessel van der Kolk’s book The Body Keeps the Score. van der Kolk is a leading expert in the best ways to heal psychological trauma. His book contains an entire chapter about the healing power of IFS.
