Buy Now with Best Price
The idea that the healthy personality is naturally multiple is a major premise of Richard Schwartz's internal family system (IFS) model, and has special relevance for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Trapped in a nightmare of abuse, denial and betrayal, some parts of the survivor absorb the pain while other parts try desperately to protect the survivor's life; such internal polarizations lead to extreme behaviours. This guide to the IFS model demonstrates how parts can be released from their extreme roles.
