Internal Family Systems Part 1: An Introduction

This talk is a part of a series of talks by Rukmini Iyer, Director, Exult! Solutions on Internal Family Systems, at HELP Library, Mumbai. This was delivered in 2015.
The Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) is an integrative approach to individual psychotherapy developed by Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D. It combines systems thinking with the view that mind is made up of relatively discrete sub personalities each with its own viewpoint and qualities. IFS use family systems theory to understand how these collections of sub personalities are organized. The speaker introduces the IFS model in this talk and will explore various modalities of usage in subsequent talks in the series.
