Why? The others have great insight on IFS, and how to practice it. Internal Family Systems Therapy: New Dimensions is a very useful recent addition, for example. Get it!
But those books tend to appeal to our cerebral parts. Dorie's has a lot to say to our younger parts. A LOT!
So...it turns out that when clients want to know more about IFS, which I use as a coach, Dorie's book is often the one I'll pass one. It's especially great for clients whose question is more about getting OK with their parts and uncovering Self-energy. For some reason, the pictures and somewhat adult words work just great--to the point that one client assigned herself the task of "reading this book to her parts" a few times a week.

A clear, concise, creative and charming little book. Not only does Dorie make IFS therapy understandable, one can feel "kind and gentle" in her words, the essence of IFS.Published 15 months ago by Wendy Sinclair Hrubec, LICSW
