Description

Healing is a word derived from the German hailjan, meaning “to make whole.” To truly heal isn’t easy, since it involves reconnecting with polarized and often volatile subpersonalities, or parts within ourselves, including protectors, managers, and exiles. The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model helps clients access an undamaged inner essence called the Self, and from this Self they learn to lovingly relate to and transform their most troubling parts. In this recording, you’ll discover how to help clients transform their fragmented experience of Self. Explore how to: 

  • Apply strategies used in IFS to contact the core Self 
  • Shift the role of therapist from the primary attachment figure to a container who opens the way for the client’s Self to emerge 
  • Use methods for transparently handling situations in which you get emotionally triggered by your client 
  • Get clients’ polarized, deeply conflicted, parts to negotiate with each other

The Center for Self Leadership


Richard Schwartz began his career as a family therapist and an academic at the University of Illinois at Chicago. There he discovered that family therapy alone did not achieve full symptom relief and in asking patients why, he learned that they were plagued by what they called "parts." These patients became his teachers as they described how their parts formed networks of inner relationship that resembled the families he had been working with. He also found that as they focused on and, thereby, separated from their parts, they would shift into a state characterized by qualities like curiosity, calm, confidence and compassion. He called that inner essence the Self and was amazed to find it even in severely diagnosed and traumatized patients. From these explorations, the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model was born in the early 1980s.

IFS is now evidence-based and has become a widely-used form of psychotherapy, particularly with trauma. It provides a non-pathologizing, optimistic, and empowering perspective and a practical and effective set of techniques for working with individuals, couples, families, and more recently, corporations and classrooms.

In 2013, Schwartz left the Chicago area and now lives in Brookline, MA where he is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
