Client Centered Parts Therapy (CCPT) Course – Two Days
Attila Kun is a licenced Parts Therapy Trainer and was trained by Roy Hunter, M.S., CHt.
Parts Therapy is based on the concept that our personality is composed of a number of various parts. Our personality parts are aspects of the subconscious, each with their respective jobs or functions of the inner mind. In other words, we tend to wear many different hats as we walk through the path of life. The facilitator of Parts Therapy may talk to the various parts, acting as a mediator, to help clients overcome subconscious resistance and achieve personal or professional goals.
This very complex hypnotherapy technique pioneered by the late Charles Tebbetts may well be the most profoundly effective technique available today for helping people resolve inner conflicts. Some psychotherapists use variations of Parts Therapy such as: Ego State Therapy (Watkins & Watkins, 1979), Voice Dialogue (Stone & Stone, 1989), Subpersonalities (Rowan, 1993) etc. The best way to begin an exploration of Parts Therapy is to quote the actual words of Charles Tebbetts, taken from his out-of-print text, Miracles on Demand (page 31):
“In 1952, Federn described Freud’s ego states – id, ego and superego – as resembling separate personalities much like the multiple personalities illustrated in the celebrated case of “The Three Faces of Eve,” but differing in that no one of them exists without the awareness of the others. I find, however, that in many cases different parts take complete control while the total individual is in a trance state of which she is unaware. A bulimic will experience time distortion while bingeing, eating for over an hour and believing that only five minutes have elapsed… Both personalities know that the other exists, but the first is unaware of the other’s existence during the period of the deviant behavior.”
In his class, Charles Tebbetts originally referred to the ego states as “ego parts;” and then shortened the term to simply “parts.” While Carl Jung, like Federn, believed that we have at least three parts (Cherry, 2011), Tebbetts only mentioned Jung a few times in his class. As noted above, he primarily gave credit to Federn for the concept of Parts Therapy.
