Richard Schwartz — IFS, Psychedelic Experiences Without Drugs, and Finding Inner Peace for Our Many Parts | Brought to you by Helix Sleep premium mattresses, LinkedIn Jobs recruitment platform with 700M+ users, and Athletic Greens all-in-one nutritional supplement. More on all three below.Richard Schwartz is on the faculty of the department of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.He began his career as a family therapist and an academic at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he discovered that family therapy alone did not achieve full symptom relief. 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 relationships 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.Please enjoy!This episode is brought to you by LinkedIn Jobs. Whether you are looking to hire now for a critical role or thinking about needs that you may have in the future, LinkedIn Jobs can help.

can someone please please please teach Tim how to ask a question? it is maddening how tangential he goes . starts a question, adds a caveat, switches to some background, and might even add in other thoughts before finishing it. I realize, as a therapist, this is based on a deep insecurity. so please find someone to help him. just ask a brief question, Tim. and you don't have to include possible answers, either. just ask and let go. you are an intelligent and articulate man. get out of your own way!
