This workbook is a companion book to Self-Therapy by Jay Earley, PhD. Self Therapy lays out the step-by-step process of the Internal Family Systems Therapy Model originated by Richard Schwartz, PhD ( The book is designed to facilitate learning the basics of the IFS process. The workbook takes you step-by-step from accessing a part by working with Protectors through getting to know and heal the more fragile, exiled parts of the psyche. The format of integrated concept descriptions and exercises is ideal for individual exploration, small groups, or classes. Exercises can be done on one’s own or with a partner. The workbook structure allows for journal-style following of your process.

The workbook provides summaries of the steps outlined by Earley and offers expanded exercises to work with and integrate the IFS process. Sample responses to the exercises are provided in order to clarify the ideas being explored. The workbook goes beyond Self-Therapy by including chapters on using IFS with couples, polarization, and firefighters. For a fuller explanation of various IFS ideas, transcripts of sessions and case examples refer to Self-Therapy.

As clinicians, Jay and I were very excited to discover the IFS Model. It allowed us to integrate our training and clinical experience with our years of spiritual practice. The concept of Self brings into the therapeutic arena the power of higher consciousness as a healing tool. We are deeply grateful to Dick Schwartz for his unflagging commitment to bring this model into the world.

Over the years of teaching the IFS Model and using it with clients, Jay and I have provided user-friendly materials that enable people to use the powerful tools of IFS in their individual efforts to grow and develop their humanness as well as to transform personal difficulties. Being psychotherapists, we deeply value the importance of the helping relationship and the sacredness of the therapeutic encounter. We do, however, believe that people can benefit from being introduced to this model outside of therapy and can work by themselves or with a partner to further their personal understanding and gain some relief from internal structures that have limited their ability to function in a satisfying way. Our hope is that this workbook will supplement existing material by providing a clear, easy-to-follow structure for doing IFS work.
