I got emotional at the end of this podcast episode because I am so grateful for my guest and the impact he’s had on my life. Dick Schwartz is the founder of Internal Family Systems, or IFS, a transformative psychotherapy that is going to change the way you think about yourself. It’s an honor to share this life-changing therapy with you. Dr. Richard (Dick) Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems (IFS) in response to his therapy clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves. He noticed systemic patterns to the way these parts were organized across clients. He also found that when the clients’ parts felt safe and were allowed to relax, the clients would spontaneously experience the qualities of confidence, openness, and compassion that Dr. Schwartz came to call the Self. He found that when in that state of Self, clients would know how to heal their parts. A featured speaker for national professional organizations, Dr. Schwartz has published many books and over fifty articles about IFS. Learn more here
