Publisher's Summary

A step-by-step guide to creating wholeness and healing your inner child using IFS, a new, cutting-edge psychotherapy.

Understand your psyche in a clear and comprehensive way, and resolve deep-seated emotional issues. Self-Therapy makes the power of a cutting-edge psychotherapy approach accessible to everyone. Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) has been spreading rapidly across the country over the past decade. It is incredibly effective on a wide variety of life issues, such as self-esteem, procrastination, depression, and relationship issues. IFS is also user friendly; it helps you to comprehend the complexity of your psyche. Dr. Earley shows how IFS is a complete method for psychological healing that you can use on your own.

Self-Therapy is also helpful for therapists because it presents the IFS model in such detail that it is a manual for the method.

An exceptional, transformatioal work.

This book systematically explains how to do Internal Family Systems therapy without a therapist for people who want to stop sabotaging their own successes personally and professionally and heal from hurtful childhood experiences. I have worked with trained IFS therapists a few times and found the approach really useful, but until I read this book I didn't fully understand how systematic the approach could be, leading to a deeper, more complete healing of one's subpersonalities than easily found in the more intuitive, random sort of approach that therapists frequently fall into. Jay Earley has done a masterful job at laying the process out for anyone willing to do the work. This book is a real Winner!

Amazing

I have been through therapy for many years and this is the first time I had clarification of how and why everything comes together. Thank you very much for this excellent book.

Really good intro to IFS

This is a superb explanation of the IFS model. Practical, informative and proceeds at just the right page to help beginners like myself work it out. Highly recommended. The narration is also clear and balanced.

Awful...

As a psychotherapist I find it useful to listen to many audio books on different topics, but this is one of the worst I have encountered. It seems simplistic, shockingly repetitive, and takes far too long to reach the point while saying fairly obvious things. As I live in UK, and enjoy clear crisp English accents, the tedious American drawl of the narrator made it almost unbearable to listen to in any sustained way. I was interested in Internal Family Systems, but this has certainly put me off.

Easy to listen, well written, well read.

I bought two books on ISF, but only kept this one, which is excellent. (The other, by the founder of ISF, had long gaps which made it difficult to listen to.) This one is interesting, well written, and listenable. I especially enjoyed the transcripts of sessions with patients, it helped me understand how the therapy works.
