Internal Family Systems II: Working with Protector Parts (Roosevelt)

Adult Enrichment / Personal Development -
Adult Enrichment Spring 2024

Our internal systems contain protector parts. Protectors attempt to shield us from hurtful incidents or distressing relationships in our current lives, because they might connect with buried pain (trauma) from childhood. Some protectors navigate and organize in an effort to help us avoid “triggering.” Some protectors act to block out pain entirely. While protectors have positive intentions, they can prevent us from experiencing deeply positive feelings or being able to move forward on our life and relationship goals. In this class, we will take a deep dive into protectors, learn about them in our own systems, practice tools to work with them, and increase our capacity to lead our own internal systems calmly and courageously.
