Emancipate Your Mind: 068: Understanding the Different “Parts” of Yourself

Sometimes we may feel like we are at odds with ourselves as we heal from religious and childhood trauma and attachment injuries. There may be part of ourselves that feels excited and free as we move towards the next chapter in our lives, and another part of ourselves that feels anxious, afraid, and even ashamed of the direction we’re headed.

In this episode, we explore how Internal Family Systems Therapy developed by Dr. Richard Schwartz helps us understand and accept the various sub-personalities we all have, how these various pieces of ourselves may have been tasked with unhealthy roles because of past trauma, and how opening up space for each of these “parts” of ourselves to be seen, heard, and validated allows us to ultimately feel whole and cohesive again.
