Group Coaching Pilot Introduction

Internal Community Workgroups

This file only applies to United Front Group Coaching Pilot Programs run by Crisses. These groups are only for people who are multiples, plurals, diagnosed with DID/MPD or OSDD/DDNOS, and are willing to work on internal community in a group setting.

Are you having trouble with trust within your system? Are there people in your head that you do not get along with? Are you frustrated with sharing your life with others? Are you ready to get along better so you can work out how to share your life with less friction?

  • Build internal system trust
  • Learn to recognize unhealthy power dynamics at play
  • Facilitate dynamics that foster communication
  • Learn from external group dynamics, and healthy social dynamics and apply them to your internal system
  • Stop unintentional internal bullying, coercion, mis-application of force in your system

We use concepts from group facilitation, organizational theory, systems theory, life coaching, and good social common sense to look at how a system may improve their internal dynamics and learn to work together.

Sessions will begin by demonstrating and discussing foundational concepts such as “As inside, so outside (and vice versa)” and how these concepts apply specifically in system trust issues. Group members will be invited to briefly share issues and asked whether they’d like to discuss how the concepts may apply to their situation.

About your Coach Facilitator

Rev. Criss Ittermann (“The Crisses”) are a life coach and Interfaith minister who became aware of “other people in their head” at age 16. With 30+ years of experience as a group entity with high co-consciousness and dealing with external multiple systems, they have brought these concepts to others to help develop better internal relationships. They are the majority contributor to kinhost.org, host of Many Minds on the Issue podcast, and the developer of the United Front Boot Camp for building internal community.

    Thanks so much for doing these courses. We are getting a lot out of them and they are such important work for us all to do if we’re going to even touch trauma stuff.

      Y’all are welcome 🙂 One hope with DID folk is helping work on all the plural-oriented & safety stuff that may help shortcut stabilization: empowerment, inner communication, coconsciousness, finding headmates, inner trust, etc. so that folk might be able to work on rapport-building with their professional team faster, and get a better handle on when they’re ready for trauma-processing. Better yet, empowering folk to be able to regulate their trauma-work rather than leaning on their professionals to regulate it for them (and whom often fail to do a good job of it 🙁 ).
