About the Book:
Is there just one “you”? We’ve been taught to believe we have a single identity, and to feel fear or shame when we can’t control the inner voices that don’t match the ideal of who we think we should be. Yet Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D.’s research now challenges this “mono-mind” theory. “All of us are born with many sub-minds―or parts,” says Schwartz. “These parts are not imaginary or symbolic. They are individuals who exist as an internal family within us―and the key to health and happiness is to honor, understand, and love every part.”
Schwartz’s Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has been transforming psychology for decades. With his latest book, No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model, you’ll learn why IFS has been so effective in areas such as trauma recovery, addiction therapy, and depression treatment―and how this new understanding of consciousness has the potential to radically change our lives.
About the Author: Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., is the creator of Internal Family Systems (IFS), a highly effective, evidence-based therapeutic model that de-pathologizes the multi-part personality. His IFS Institute offers training for professionals and the general public. He is currently on the faculty of Harvard Medical School. Dr. Schwartz began his career as a systemic family therapist and an academic. Grounded in systems thinking, he developed IFS in response to clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves. He focused on the relationships among these parts and noticed that there were systemic patterns to the way they were organized across clients. He also found that when the clients’ parts felt safe and were allowed to relax, the clients would experience spontaneously 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.
About the Interviewer: Nancy Burgoyne, Ph.D., is the chief clinical officer at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. She is a faculty member in the Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy program, a licensed clinical psychologist and a family therapist who abides by the scientist-practitioner model. Dr. Burgoyne has more than 30 years of experience providing direct service to clients, and more than 20 years training, leading, and learning alongside her fellow clinicians. She approaches her work with cultural humility and believes that every human being is worthy of compassionate witnessing.
