Course objectives:

  • Discuss an overview of the Internal Family Systems Therapy—recognizing your stuck parts in need of healing, while accessing Self as the calm, centered, ground in your life.
  • Practice, through guided meditation, the necessary steps to access, "un-blend" from, and get to know the various parts of your psyche in service to healing and transformation.
  • Utilize the recordings of complete IFS demonstration sessions as a way to observe the outlined steps within an individual's process.
  • Outline the seven types of inner critics—the steps to access them, un-blend from them, get to know them and transform them.
  • Discuss the seven types of inner champions and practice a guided meditation for accessing your inner champion—the antidote to the inner critic that supports you in being your Self.

Psychotherapy works through dialogue between the therapist and client—but what if you could have an effective healing dialogue with yourself? "Because our minds are actually a home to many sub-personalities," Dr. Jay Earley explains, "we have the ability to heal ourselves by engaging directly with the each of our parts." With Self-Therapy, Dr. Earley offers a complete audio training course in a revolutionary therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS), a powerful psychological tool for finding freedom from chronic emotional issues such as depression and anxiety, and creating internal harmony where the aspects of your psyche are working together for your well-being.

Your True Self—The Wellspring of Inner Healing

The IFS method teaches you how to access the Self—the grounded, spiritual center of your being that is the source of all healing. You’ll learn to engage with each of your parts from your Self with open curiosity, compassion, and love. Dr. Earley offers guided practices and step-by-step instructions for healing the exiled parts that carry emotional wounds from childhood, the protectors that try to shield you from pain, the inner critics that judge you and undermine your self-worth, the parts that make you procrastinate or overeat, and more.

"Each part of us is trying to help or protect us," explains Dr. Jay Earley. "Though they may unintentionally cause suffering by being stuck in the past, we can learn to transform them into caring allies." Self-Therapy is a complete training course in a revolutionary method for inner exploration, psychological self-healing, and cultivating love for your whole being.

Excellent overview program! Review by Lee


I love this audio program. It's an excellent overview of the IFS system, presented in a concise, yet detailed, well-organized, easy-to-follow format. Jay is an excellent teacher, and his voice is very soothing and easy to listen to. I have learned a tremendous amount from listening to this program, and recommend it to my therapy clients - and highly recommend it to anyone seeking an overview of the IFS system. Thanks for putting together such a great product! (I also agree with what all the other commenters have said - especially the person who says they find this and Inner Relationship Focusing by Ann Weiser Cornell to be the most effective self-help tools they've found - I use both these tools myself, and completely agree.)

Excellent Review by Tim


Of the many self therapy products I've used, this is the most effective by a long way, along with Ann Weiser Cornell's Inner Relationship Focusing.

A very clear, step by step explanation, with examples along the way.

With understanding and practice, I really can give myself an effective therapy session, so it lives up to its title. (Posted on February 18, 2015)

Review for Self-Therapy Review by Noreen Barron


I am really so impressed with this programme. It makes parts therapy so easy to understand and I really like Jay Earley's style of presenting the information. He also has a really nice speaking voice, very calming. I've already started to incorporate some of the tools into my personal and professional work and highly recommend this programme.

Review for Self-Therapy Review by Kari K


I love this guy and his work. Jay does a great job of explaining this therapeutic modality, and includes demonstrations with volunteer clients and meditations for practicing with oneself. I think it is a very powerful tool, and I'm so happy this audio program came my way just when I was looking for it. Jay's voice is very soothing, so it helps me to be in a quiet space where I can give it my full attention. Otherwise I might tune it out if distracted with other stimulation.

Review for Self-Therapy Review by Tim C


I love this program. I was already familiar with Internal Family Systems Therapy and this set seems to be an excellent introduction.

I love the way I can take myself and friends thru a session using this audio, which can be as useful as a paying session with a therapist. Makes it great value. (Posted on December 18, 2013)
