This session introduces a new model of the human psyche, that rests on the notion—so memorably depicted in the Academy Award-winning 2015 Pixar movie Inside Out—that the human psyche is not singular but is multiple, like a family. This strengths-based multiplicity of mind model proposes that there are nine universal family members or subpersonalities that were sculpted by evolution, each with its own agenda including needs, drives, values, strengths, voices, and emotions. The model is explored in a Harvard Health book published by William Morrow in September 2016, co-authored by Margaret Moore, and titled Organize Your Emotions, Optimize your Life. Moore will introduce the inner family, and propose how to coach and self-coach the inner family.
