Reviews

"Internal Family Systems and children go together like pb&j. Children naturally take to the imagination, play, honesty, and heart of this method. And no voice could be better suited to guide us than that of Lisa Spiegel, a gifted clinician, teacher, and storyteller. With warmth, humor, and deep compassion, she has written the definitive text on the subject. A must read for anyone working with either IFS or with children."-Terry Real, author, The New Rules of Marriage "Enter Lisa Spiegel. She has over 30 years of experience working with children and has studied and practiced IFS since 2010. She sent me [her] manuscript and I was elated. Not only are her case examples true to IFS theory and technique, they are captivating. This book is an important contribution not only to the growing literature on IFS, but to the field of child therapy in general. I'm very grateful."- Richard C. Schwartz, PhD, developer of Internal Family Systems Therapy; faculty, Harvard Medical School
