You can help even the most conflicted, disconnected couples restore and heal their relationship.

IFS Couple Therapy Skills Manual presents clinicians with a powerful, non-pathologizing approach to helping couples better understand themselves, their differences, and the underlying reasons for their suffering.

Working from the lens of Intimacy from the Inside Out (IFIO) - a branch of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy - the authors provide a highly successful therapy that allows couples to feel understood, to decrease shame, and to reestablish loving connections. Inside you’ll find:

• Step-by-step techniques
• Case examples
• Experiential exercises
• Clear treatment explanations
• Downloadable worksheets


Therapists working from this perspective will be informed and enriched by this manual’s depth and thoroughness, and expertly guided around the IFS interface of their interacting ‘parts’.
-- Harville Hendrix, PhD, and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, authors of Getting the Love You Want

This skills manual provides a necessary bridge between differentiation and attachment, empowering therapists to sharpen their therapeutic focus and effectiveness in facilitating healing conversations.
-- George Faller, LMFT, EFT Trainer

Herbine-Blank and Sweezy’s manual is elegantly simple and stunningly profound. Therapeutic models are often easier to teach than they are to integrate into one’s own therapeutic practice. This manual shows us how to utilize their treatment model, Intimacy from the Inside Out, and the myriad of case examples shows us the amazing results. Couple after couple is able to let down their guard and learn how to open their hearts to each other with tenderness and compassion. Bateson famously said, “The map is not the territory.” But this book is a map that is as close to being in the room with IFIO’s masters as one could hope to be. It’s a treasure map. It could transform your practice.
--David Treadway, PhD, therapist, educator, author of Treating Couples Well, A Practical Guide to Collaborative Couple Therapy
