We all have Parts!
A Little Book with Big Ideas about Healing Trauma
A short illustrated guide for survivors of childhood trauma and neglect. With simple language and lots of illustrations, this book will orient you to your symptoms and your inner system of parts. The format is like a kid's book, but it's for adults. Colleen West, Marriage & Family Therapist, IFS Certified Therapist, EMDR International Association Consultant, psychotherapist, consultant, trainer, and trauma-survivor herself, has stuffed a ton of psychoeducation and practical guidance into these pages. Includes: Window of tolerance, autonomic defenses, flashbacks, a simple and practical understanding of dissociation, parts mapping, and more. Designed for people with Complex PTSD, or histories of trauma and/or neglect, who are doing Internal Family Systems therapy.
