Parts-therapy is the concept that our personality is composed of a number
of various parts from our subconscious. The goal of parts-therapy is to
help people have all the parts of the self ready to show up when needed.
This treatment is particularly useful for someone who has experienced
unresolved trauma. More therapists around the world are discovering the
benefits of parts-therapy for helping clients overcome personal barriers.
Parts therapy can also help resolve internal conflicts, even after a client
fails to respond to traditional techniques. The patient-centered approach
uses the patient’s own ability to resolve their inner conflicts.
How Does Parts-Therapy Work?
Some people are fortunate enough to have the traits they wish to tap into
from time to time. For others, accessing their desired personality is
extremely difficult. Parts-therapy helps us develop the parts we do not
have yet. A parts-therapy facilitator acts as a mediator to help clients
resolve their inner conflicts. The facilitator communicates directly with
the parts of the subconscious involved in a person’s inner conflict.
The facilitator then employs mediation to help resolve the inner conflict,
hopefully achieving the desired result by:
- Identifying the part
- Establishing rapport with the part
- Calling out the part
- Thanking the part for emerging
- Discovering the part’s purpose
- Calling out to other appropriate parts
- Negotiating and mediating an agreement between the parts
- Integrating the parts together
This approach empowers patients because it’s based on the idea that
the power to change resides within the client. The facilitator's job
is to remain as objective as possible during therapy. This method helps
people constructively discover their inner power. Improved self-esteem
is often a side benefit for many people who try parts-therapy.
