“Religious Studies and Internal Family Systems Therapy” (2021)

I’m very excited that Implicit Religion will soon publish a piece I wrote on IFS and the study of religion!

  1. Thanks! I only have a weekend IFS training from early 2020, and I’m certainly not a clinician, but I have been enjoying Frank Anderson’s work, and his new book (which was published too late to be included in my article).

    1. Nice. I’m an IFS clinician and a Christian. I’ve been working on the integration of the two for a little while. I look forward to your paper, I may have questions afterward. Always looking for people who think integratively.

  2. That’s interesting. The idea of integrating Christianity and IFS is challenging to me, and I would be worried about the use of IFS as a means to Christian ends. It seems like a lot depends on the character of that integration, and whether it runs counter to the aims of IFS (one of which is to avoid forcing integration of parts). Fascinating stuff.
