How to Coach Your Clients to Unblend

Coach Training with Liz Green

Training Overview:

Parts work is a branch of Internal Family Systems, a therapeutic model founded by Richard Schwartz which has deep roots in the psychotherapeutic concept of “splitting”. In IFS, a split is personified (ie. protector parts, young parts, fearful parts) and it arises at different times defensively.  Every human being splits, it’s a classic primitive defense that is very useful and aligns closely with what’s happening in our nervous system. A healthy use of splitting would be when a surgeon splits in order to perform surgery; a pathological example of severe splitting would be dissociative identity disorder (formerly referred to as multiple personality disorder) i.e. Brad Pitt in Fight Club, Jim Carrey in Me, Myself, & Irene, and James McAvoy in Split.

It’s great for clients who spend a lot of time in their heads, and/or who use defense mechanisms like splitting, dissociation, acting out, regression, displacement, projective identification, intellectualization, rationalization, and denial. It works well for people who are sometimes out of sorts, emotional all over the place, experiencing contradictions (such as when two opposites can exist simultaneously, i.e. they desire closeness/connection but push others away), and express immature, young, primitive feelings, etc.
