Internal Family Systems Psychotherapy is an approach that applies systems thinking and family therapy technique to the internal process of an individual. It conceives the mind as an inner family of subpersonalities or "parts" that form alliances and polarizations, just as "external" families do. It helps a client assess his or her "self" as a core of valuable leadership resources. It is transformative to work with parts from a place of compassion and perspective.
The state of being in "Self" or "mindfulness," gives the client the ability to de-polarize conflicts within the family or organization and helps establish balance and harmony throughout the entire system.
