This is one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done on this podcast. As you’ll hear in our conversation, I’ve been studying Internal Family Systems for a while, and I’ve really adopted it as a cornerstone of the work I do. It’s become fundamental to my understanding of just about every issue working parents face, and it has changed so much in my own life as well. Rebecca really helps offer a practical guide to using IFS to improve our work, our relationships, and our lives in general.
