Introduction to Internal Parts

We are made up of our parts, parts that want to protect us, part that want to grow, parts that want to hide or maybe a part that just wants everyone to be happy. In this introduction, I will give you a better understanding of your internal family systems (Richard Schwartz) and help you to work with your parts to become a healthier happier you.

In this brief introduction, I explain how to use the very simple but very powerful tools of reflection, validation and curiosity to build bridges and resolve differences even in the the most difficult situations.
