The internal family system (IFS) is a psychotherapeutic approach that identifies and addresses the different personalities or families in each person's mental system. This personality consists of parts that are hurt and painful emotions such as anger and shame as well as parts that try to control and protect the person from pain on the part that was injured.
Personalities are often at odds with each other and with themselves, a concept that describes the confident, loving, and whole person that underlies each individual. To get more details about internal family systems group therapy you may see it here.

IFS focuses on healing the injured area and healing mental balance and harmony by adjusting the dynamics that lead to a break in the relationship between personality and self.
IFS therapy is used to treat individuals, couples, and families. It is an evidence-based approach that is effective in treating a variety of medical conditions and their symptoms such as depression, phobias, anxiety, panic, and physical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, as well as in improving function and general well-being.
What to expect
IFS is a conversational therapy in which you work with a therapist to identify and understand specific personalities or families that make up your inner mental system. Once you have identified these areas, the therapist will help you identify how you feel about these depressing emotions, learn how to let go of those feelings so that you can handle the real problem more freely, and ultimately find more positive problems.
