This is the Illustrated Workbook for Self-Therapy for Your Inner Critic: Transforming Self-Criticism into Self-Confidence. Illustrations from this book and from Self Therapy by Jay Earley are used here to elucidate the Internal Family Systems Therapy Model (IFS) and our Inner Critic work.
The book is intended to give people a quick and clear visual understanding of the Inner Critic and how it operates. It is designed to provide creative learning opportunities via visual representations, thought-provoking questions, imagery exercises, and artistic opportunities.
This Workbook can be used by therapists, counselors, or teachers familiar with the IFS model. Classes, groups, or individuals can interact with the concepts through discussion and personal sharing.
If you struggle with bouts of depression and low self-esteem; feel ashamed or guilty or hopeless at times, our work with the Inner Critic can open up new vistas for dealing with these issues. The Inner Critic is the part of you that judges you, demeans you, and tells you who you should be. It undermines your self-confidence and makes you feel bad about yourself. Since this is one of the most difficult and tenacious issues that people face, we have written Self-Therapy for Your Inner Critic and this companion Illustrated Workbook to show you how to transform your Inner Critic using IFS.
Our work can help you put an end to your painful feelings and grow into the person you’ve always dreamed of being. The surprising and wonderful news is that many people can achieve this transformation on their own, without the intervention of a psychotherapist. It’s time for your suffering to end because you can transform your life.
