Parts work therapy seeks to incorporate the splintered parts of the self, parts which occur because of trauma, disrupted personal development or developmental psychology.
Parts work within psychoanalysis
In psychoanalysis it is common to work with the client through different parts of their lives, looking for how the client may have been splintered into different parts. The objective is to open a conversation, understanding and eventually combination and healing between the different parts.
Parts work in Analytical Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapists trained in analytic, regression and inner child hypnosis often use parts work and seek to return to different stages / parts and open the conversation in an altered / relaxed state. This might be a full formal trance, or just a light relaxed and focused state (as in informal or conversational hypnosis). In conversational hypnosis the process will often weave in and out of psychoanalysis – hypnoanalysis without obvious pause or boundary.
Parts Work for Trauma, Disassociation and Developmental issues
The classic reasons for using parts work is to have a healing effect on trauma, complex PTSD trauma, dysfunctional development, post abuse survival healing and other life stories where there have been significant patterns or events that have left a mark or imprint on the now. In that sense it is very similar, and indeed has a lot of overlap with Gestalt therapy.
