Jailbreak: How to Escape Your Mental Prisons

In this episode...

“What if I could show you a way to reconnect with the whole of who you are, in service to your highest purpose as you know it? What if I could help you break out of the invisible prison in which you have been living–the one that keeps you small and scared?”

I speak with Dr. Angela Heubner, author of Jailbreak: The Making and Breaking of Our Invisible Prisons; An IFS Informed Escape Angela describes this beautiful model of natural multiplicity of the mind, in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): “We are inherently good.” And she describes just how different IFS is from conventional psychology like cognitive behavioral therapy. Angela talks about the most common protective parts of us, what she calls our prison guards: the pleaser, the worry-wort, the perfectionist, and the logician.
