The COVID-19 pandemic has robbed us, and our clients, from the ability to connect in our usual ways.

As Bessel van der Kolk shares in his New York Times #1 bestselling book The Body Keeps the Score, we need social support to provide protection against becoming overwhelmed by stress, anxiety and trauma.

...but social support is NOT the same as simply being in the physical presence of each other. It's so much deeper.

The critical issue is making those we interact with feel truly heard and seen.

That's why we've brought together 20 of psychotherapy's thought leaders and clinical experts for a unique online course where they talk about how we can best adapt, connect, and create safe connections —so you can provide high-quality care and support that helps your clients overcome overwhelming stress, anxiety, and trauma.

Register today and not only will you get real-time access to the minds and musings of the field's top experts, including Bessel van der Kolk, Dick Schwartz, Peter Levine, Julie Gottman, Deb Dana, Gabor Maté, and more...

Ricard Schwartz
RICHARD SCHWARTZ, PHD
Director of the IFS Institute and originator of the Internal Family Systems therapy model, he is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School

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 centre 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 Skills Training Manual (with Frank Anderson, M.D. and Martha Sweezy, Ph.D.) (PESI, 2017), Internal Family Systems Therapy (Guilford Press, 1997), Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model (Tarcher, 2001), and The Mosaic Mind (with Regina Goulding) (Trailheads, 2003), as well as Metaframeworks (with Doug Breunlin and Betty Karrer) (Jossey-Bass, 1997). Dr. Schwartz lives and practices in Brookline, MA and is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard School of Medicine.
