“Rather than being a passive observer, this mindful Self can help reorganize the inner system and communicate with the parts in ways that help those parts trust that there is someone inside who can handle things. Again neuroscience research shows that this is not just a metaphor. Mindfulness increases activation of the medial prefrontal cortex and decreases activation of structures like the amygdala that trigger our emotional responses. This increases our control over the emotional brain. Even more than encouraging a relationship between a therapist and a helpless patient, IFS (Internal Family Systems) focuses on cultivating an inner relationship between the Self and the various protective parts. In this model of treatment the Self doesn’t only witness or passively observe, as in some meditation traditions; it has an active leadership role. The Self is like an orchestra conductor who helps all the parts to function harmoniously as a symphony rather than a cacophony.” #thebodykeepsthescore #besselvanderkolk #ifs #internalfamilysystems #partsworktherapy #dissociation #did #dissociativeidentitydisorder #splitpersonality #selfawareness #cptsd #ptsd #anxiety #cptsdrecovery #ptsdrecovery #healingtrauma #somaticexperiencing #traumainformed #traumainformedcare #traumasensitiveyoga #traumainformedyoga #childhoodtrauma #developmentaltrauma #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #neurofeedback #neuroplasticity #dbt #addiction #traumatherapy
