No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model by Richard Schwartz Ph.D.

No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model by Richard Schwartz Ph.D.

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM) (EDT)

Description

Dr. Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been transforming psychology for decades. With No Bad Parts, you’ll learn why Internal Family Systems (IFS)  has been so effective in areas such as trauma recovery, addiction therapy, and depression treatment―and how this new understanding of consciousness has the potential to radically change our lives. 

Is there just one “you”? We’ve been taught to believe we have a single identity, and to feel fear or shame when we can’t control the inner voices that don’t match the ideal of who we think we should be. Yet Dr. Richard Schwartz’s research now challenges this “mono-mind” theory. “All of us are born with many sub-minds―or parts,” says Dr. Schwartz. “These parts are not imaginary or symbolic. They are individuals who exist as an internal family within us―and the key to health and happiness is to honor, understand, and love every part.”

Here you’ll explore:

• The IFS revolution―how honoring and communicating with our parts changes our approach to mental wellness

• Overturning the cultural, scientific, and spiritual assumptions that reinforce an outdated mono-mind model

• The ego, the inner critic, the saboteur―making these often-maligned parts into powerful allies

• Burdens―why our parts become distorted and stuck in childhood traumas and cultural beliefs

• How IFS demonstrates human goodness by revealing that there are no bad parts

• The Self―discover your wise, compassionate essence of goodness that is the source of healing and harmony

• Exercises for mapping your parts, accessing the Self, working with a challenging protector, identifying each part’s triggers, and more

IFS is a paradigm-changing model because it gives us a powerful approach for healing ourselves, our culture, and our planet. As Dr. Schwartz teaches, “Our parts can sometimes be disruptive or harmful, but once they’re unburdened, they return to their essential goodness. When we learn to love all our parts, we can learn to love all people―and that will contribute to healing the world.”

ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon)

How can so many women feel "good and mad" yet still reluctant to speak up in a meeting or difficult conversation? Why do women often feel like they're too much--and, at the same time, not enough? What causes us, at the most critical moments in our lives, to freeze?

Kasia Urbaniak teaches power to women--and her answers to these questions may surprise you. Based on insights from her experiences as a dominatrix, her training to become a Taoist nun, and the countless women she has taught to expand their influence, this book offers precise, practical instruction in how to stand in your power, find your voice, and use it well.

Learn how to:  
•  Embrace your desires as the pathway to your destiny.  
•  Ask for--and get--what you need in your life, work, and in the bedroom.  
•  Skillfully navigate hearing "no" and any resistance, even your own.  
•  Flip power dynamics when someone crosses your boundaries and puts you on the spot.  
•  Create new and expanded roles for the people in your life with precise, targeted asks.

Whether you're getting crystal clear on exactly what you want, or turning the tables on a man who has shut you up and shut you down, Urbaniak's methods teach women to stand for themselves in every interaction.

Part manual, part manifesto, part behind the scenes look, Unbound is a how-to guide to the impossible, the outrageous, the unimaginable--a field guide to living your wildest, best, and most satisfying life.
