IFS Self-Help Titles
Internal Family Systems therapy is an interesting mix of old and new ideas. One of the problems with it though is that your clients may not have heard about it. Luckily, there are now a wide variety of IFS based workbooks and self help manuals.
Here are a few suggestions for resources you can recommend or give to your clients with confidence.
In particular, Richard Schwartz’s approachable Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model is regularly recommended by those who’ve been working with IFS for a while.
In this book, Richard Schwartz, the developer of the Internal Family Systems Model, introduces its basic concepts and methods in an engaging, understandable, and personal style. Therapists will find that the book deepens their appreciation of the IFS model and helps their clients understand what they are experiencing in therapy. Also included are user-friendly exercises to facilitate learning.
