Schwartz developed the groundbreaking Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, premised on the inspired understanding that we aren’t coherent, unified beings, but made up of many selves. He’s demonstrated how addressing these selves as a system can ultimately bring order and healing to the inner cacophony. You’ll learn how this method can help resolve emotional conflicts between different inner “parts,” and see a show-stopping video clip of IFS in action.
Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., is director of the Center for Self Leadership and the originator of the Internal Family Systems Model. He’s published more than 50 articles and four books about IFS, including Internal Family Systems Therapy, The Mosaic Mind with Regina Goulding, and, most recently, You Are the One You’ve Been Waiting For.
