No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model

Pre-order the forthcoming book from Dick Schwartz. Available everywhere July 6th, 2021

Is there some part of yourself that you wish would go away? Most of us would say yes, whether we call it addiction, the inner critic, “monkey mind,” neurosis, sinfulness, bad habits, or some other disparaging name. Yet what if there was a different way to approach these aspects of yourself that leads to true healing instead of constant inner struggle? With No Bad Parts, Dr. Richard Schwartz teaches a revolutionary paradigm of understanding and relating with ourselves—a method that brings us into inner harmony, enhances self-compassion, and opens the

Discover an empowering new way of understanding your multi-faceted mind—and healing the many parts that make you who you are.

Is there just one “you”? We’ve been taught to believe we have a single identity, and to feel fear or shame when we can’t control the inner voices that don’t match the ideal of who we think we should be. Yet Dr. Richard Schwartz’s research now challenges this “mono-mind” theory. “All of us are born with many sub-minds—or parts,” says Dr. Schwartz. “These parts are not imaginary or symbolic. They are individuals who exist as an internal family within us—and the key to health and happiness is to honor, understand, and love every part.”

Dr. Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been transforming psychology for decades. With No Bad Parts, you’ll learn why IFS has been so effective in areas such as trauma recovery, addiction therapy, and depression treatment—and how this new understanding of consciousness has the potential to radically change our lives. Here you’ll explore:

• The IFS revolution—how honoring and communicating with our parts changes our approach to mental wellness

• Overturning the cultural, scientific, and spiritual assumptions that reinforce an outdated “mono-mind” model

• The ego, the inner critic, the saboteur—making these often-maligned parts into powerful allies

• Burdens—why our parts become distorted and stuck in childhood traumas and cultural beliefs

• How IFS demonstrates human goodness by revealing that there are no bad parts

• The Self—discover your wise, compassionate essence of goodness that is the source of healing and harmony

• Exercises for mapping your parts, accessing the Self, working with a challenging protector, identifying each part’s triggers, and more

IFS a paradigm-changing model because it gives us a powerful approach for healing ourselves, our culture, and our planet. As Dr. Schwartz teaches, “Our parts can sometimes be disruptive or harmful, but once they’re unburdened, they return to their essential goodness. When we learn to love all our parts, we can learn to love all people—and that will contribute to healing the world.”
