The Tanner Wallace Podcast

May 10, 2022

Let’s talk about Protective Parts! This is such a fitting topic for this milestone episode given how critical Parts work—befriending and unburdening Protective Parts in particular—has been on my healing journey. Healing didn’t truly begin for me until I learned about Protective Parts through the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model. Today I want to share some of the nuances of working with Protective Parts of survivors of complex trauma that I’ve come to understand over the past year working with my system and those of my clients. 


In this episode I explain:

  • Protective Parts through the IFS framework
  • How scapegoating occurs in a trauma ecosystem and our Protective Parts’ role in it
  • Why Self-like Parts often confuse and disorient both survivors and the helping professionals we hire to guide and support us
