Understand your psyche in a clear and comprehensive way, and resolve deep-seated emotional issues. Self-Therapy makes the power of a cutting-edge psychotherapy approach accessible to everyone. Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) has been spreading rapidly across the country in the past decade. It is incredibly effective on a wide variety of life issues, such as self-esteem, procrastination, depression, and relationship issues. IFS is also user-friendly; it helps you to comprehend the complexity of your psyche. Dr. Earley shows how IFS is a complete method for psychological healing that you can use on your own.
Self-Therapy is also helpful for therapists because it presents the IFS model in such detail that it is a manual for the method.

Jay has a great talent for making complex things easy to understand. The vignettes are very useful in seeing how IFS works in real life, and the help sheets are particularly valuable when you work on yourself.

model for transformation and healing.

Self-Therapy was a big help to me in the beginning when I didn't have much knowledge of IFS or myself. The transcripts were intriguing because I looked at other people's experience in the book and recognized my parts. This helped me to realize that I'm not the only one with these difficult feelings. In my journal I
wrote out the answers to each of the questions for my parts, and this brought it all together for me.
