    Looking for more information on how IFS can help TMS?

    Books, etc.
    Healing and Growth with IFS, by Dr. Jay Earley - an 18 page introduction to IFS. Available as a free PDF

    Self-Therapy: A Step-By-Step Guide to Creating Wholeness and Healing Your Inner Child Using IFS, A New, Cutting-Edge Psychotherapy, by Dr. Jay Earley.
    Available as a paperback or on Kindle at amazon.com

    Freedom from Your Inner Critic, by Dr. Jay Earley.

    Dr. Earley has written about most aspects of IFS theory and practice - his books and other materials are available at amazon.com, at bookstores and online (see Websites, below).

    IFS founder, Dr. Richard Schwartz has also written extensively. Most people find Dr. Earley’s work more accessible, however.

    The Parts Therapy / IFS subforum at:

    www.tmswiki.org/forum/forums/parts-therapy-and-ifs-internal-family-systems.34/ - meet, learn, share.

    There is also lots of parts talk at tmshelp.com and tmswiki.org

    Mailing List
    The Tension Myositis Syndrome Wiki recently launched a new Parts Therapy / IFS (Internal Family Systems) Mailing List. Go here: http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/mailing-list-for-parts-therapy-tms.2868/ for more information. The sign up form is below Forest’s opening post. It's just as easy to unsubscribe if you decide it isn't for you.

    Internal Family Systems founder Dr. Richard Schwartz discusses how he discovered IFS: http://tube.majestyc.net/?v=E88q5z7WvSo
    Lovely video!

    Here’s a more comprehensive introductory video about IFS:

    Plenty more on youtube.com, too. Search: Internal Family Systems.

    Dr. Richard Schwartz: www.selfleadership.org
    Dr. Jay Earley's sites:
    www.personalgrowthconnect.com - peer support; find an IFS buddy; and more
    www.psychemaps.com - the Inner Critic questionnaire lives here.

    Many individual IFS practitioners have their own sites, as well.

    Therapists, Practitioners and Coaches
    These therapists are on the Parts Therapy / IFS Mailing List:

    Liz Dyde at www.lizdyde.com; Liz is a psychotherapist, coach and EFT practitioner in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, who conducts sessions on Skype. She is interested in IFS and uses it in her practice.

    Mark Hurwich at www.ConcentratedCoaching.NET office: 267-629-2189 and cell: 917-826-7776; Mark is an IFS practitioner/coach in Pennsylvania who also works via Skype.

    Jay Earley and Bonnie Weiss offer personal and group therapy (including distance options).

    Visit the official IFS practitioner directory for a full list of people trained in the IFS approach. They may not know much about TMS but we can teach them as they teach us the principles of working with parts!

    IMPORTANT: many people can learn to help themselves with IFS through books and videos. Some will benefit from working with a therapist but are not necessarily tied down to expensive therapy sessions for a long period of time.

    The video is long but I watched a little at it is very interesting.
    I'll get back to it soon as I can.

    It sure is a long video but worthwhile. I'd love to hear your take on it, Walt, when you are done. I'll have to listen to it again, myself.
