The One Inside: An Internal Family Systems (IFS) podcast

Sep 6, 2019

This is the perfect episode to lead us into the Fall season, into back to school schedules, and into daily routines.

The similarities and parallels between parenting and workplace leadership are remarkable and Seth shows us how unblending from parts and expanding Self with connection, warmth, and curiosity impacts both spheres of life.

Seth has extensive experience as a previous Head of School for an Independent Montessori school and a national consultant for Headstart. Oh, and he has a PhD in organizational management with a specialty in Leadership. He integrates this to help others live more at ease as an IFS practitioner.

In this first episode, we talk about parenting. We have an in depth conversation about 'external constraints' and how we are experiencing the feelings and thoughts of a part when we are blended. Seth gives practical advice for helping our parts and helping our kids with their parts.

Seth states, "In this routine is life... in the routine I can add in warmth to help connection." He also encourages parents to ask, "Am I creating shame or compassion?"

If you want to stop yelling at your kid, listen in.
