Full Title: Internal Family Systems Therapy
The family therapy movement, which viewed extreme individual behaviors in the context of a larger system, liberated the field of mental health to focus on context and relationships. Internal Family Systems (IFS) takes this perspective further by viewing the psyche as a relational milieu that is populated by independent entities. IFS guides us to be curious about the motives and interactions of this inner populace, who have their own stories to tell.
