As a young therapist, I often struggled to get results. I avoided my client's internal emotions and instead tried to control the difficult symptoms I was seeing — which led to heated arguments and frustration rather than progress.

When I started listening closely to my clients, I finally discovered the answer to healing and transformation...

As clients would talk about their different parts (and how the parts felt pain and emotions), I realized that was the key — we have to free each part from the trauma, abuse, attachment injuries and suffering that they feel.

Since I began developing Internal Family Systems (IFS) 30 years ago, it has been scientifically tested to be effective at helping a wide variety of mental health conditions – such as trauma, addiction, anxiety and depression — which is why it is one of the fastest growing approaches in therapy.

Hailed by Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, IFS will transform your clients' lives as they learn to heal themselves. No more therapist directives or insights, rather IFS will provide a connection with your client that creates lasting healing

Please join me in this rare training — I want to give you the skills you need to use IFS, so you can improve what you're doing in the therapy room — and see transformation in your clients' lives.

Richard Schwartz, PhD

About the Presenter:

Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., earned his Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy from Purdue University, after which he began a long association with the Institute for Juvenile Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and more recently at The Family Institute at Northwestern University, attaining the status of associate professor at both institutions. He is co-author, with Michael Nichols, of Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, the most widely used family therapy text in the United States.

Dr. Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems in response to clients’ descriptions of experiencing various parts – many extreme – within themselves. He noticed that when these parts felt safe and had their concerns addressed, they were less disruptive and would accede to the wise leadership of what Dr. Schwartz came to call the “Self.” In developing IFS, he recognized that, as in systemic family theory, parts take on characteristic roles that help define the inner world of the clients. The coordinating Self, which embodies qualities of confidence, openness, and compassion, acts as a center around which the various parts constellate. Because IFS locates the source of healing within the client, the therapist is freed to focus on guiding the client’s access to his or her true Self and supporting the client in harnessing its wisdom. This approach makes IFS a non-pathologizing, hopeful framework within which to practice psychotherapy. It provides an alternative understanding of psychic functioning and healing that allows for innovative techniques in relieving clients symptoms and suffering.

In 2000, Richard Schwartz founded The Center for Self Leadership in Oak Park, Illinois. Dr. Schwartz is a featured speaker for many national psychotherapy organizations and a fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and he serves on the editorial boards of four professional journals. He has published four books and over 50 articles about IFS. His books include Internal Family Systems Therapy, Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model, and The Mosaic Mind (with Regina Goulding), as well as Metaframeworks (with Doug Breunlin and Betty Karrer). Dr. Schwartz lives and practices in Brookline, MA and is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard School of Medicine.
