In this interview, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk talks with Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., developer and founder of Internal Family Systems (IFS) - hailed by Dr. van der Kolk as “the treatment method that all clinicians should know to treat clients effectively”.

Listen to Dr. Schwartz’s discovery of IFS through his work with families and the roles that individuals play in a family system. Within an individual, these same roles exist as parts - all of which serve important and purposeful functions.

Through role play, observe how Dr. Schwartz uses IFS in therapy. Find tips, tricks, and resources that you can use to begin your journey using this treatment modality for your traumatized clients or gain additional insight for the seasoned IFS practitioner.
