If you ever felt torn inside (for example one part of you wants to change your job and the other wants to stay in the current one),
if you hear different voices in your imagination (for example the unpleasant voice of your Inner Critic).
if in the company of colleagues and friends you behave differently than in the company of your parents and totally different than in the company of your life partner...
...then thinking in the categories of “parts of personality” will become natural to you quite easily.
IFS stands for Internal Family Systems, a therapeutic model that uses specific techniques to help clients access their own internal system, with parts that function much like a family. These parts take on different roles, such as an inner critic, achiever, pleaser, overeater, and so forth, and consist of protective parts and wounded parts. In getting to know our parts we can move from dysfunctional/destructive patterns into more whole and healthy ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
