This is a brief lecture I give on Buddhism and Parts Work.



This is a one hour lecture introducing the Parts Work (IFS) model I gave at the Max Planck Institute, including relating the model to Buddhist psychology and developing sustainable compassion. In the talk I also discuss therapeutic factors research and how IFS and Buddhist practices can help the therapist provide these therapeutic factors.
