What is the theory behind this Jay Earley self therapy worksheet?

Jay Earley’s self therapy is a psychotherapy that we can administer on ourselves without the help of a facilitator. It describes self consisting of multiple subpersonalities. These personalities have their own perspective, feelings, memories, goals, and motivations. For example, one part of you might be trying to write a book, and another part might want to binge watch Netflix. Some personalities are very common among individuals like, the Inner Critic, the Pleaser, the Angry Part, the nurturing mom/ caretaker or the needy baby etc. Some parts are evident while some are in exile, i.e. they are hidden in the unconscious behind a curtain.

How will the worksheet help?
