Details of the IFS model...

Founded by Richard Schwartz, PhD., the Internal Family Systems model (IFS), is a cutting edge psychotherapy approach that offers therapists a non-pathological conceptual framework for understanding the human psyche. IFS respectfully guides people toward lasting and profound transformation. IFS applies family systems principles and techniques to working with inner parts of the person. It is widely used internationally in the treatment of trauma and severe diagnoses, as well as a wide variety of psychological issues and non-clinical applications such as business consulting and meditation practice. IFS offers therapists a way to make their practice more enjoyable and effective, and less effortful. It also helps them find and heal parts of themselves.


SAMHSA has recently added IFS to the US National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices rating it as “effective for improving general functioning and well-being,” and “promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms.”

2015 Networker Symposium keynote with Dick Schwartz (6 min excerpt)

In this clip from Richard Schwartz's keynote, "The Inner Game of Psychotherapy," he explains how the method he developed, Internal Family Systems (IFS), allows clients to be the primary agent in their healing process and rely less on the therapist as an attachment figure.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is the signature work of Richard Schwartz PhD, more at www.selfleadership.org


As a clinical treatment IFS is rated effective to improve general functioning and well-being by the US

National Registry for Evidence-based Programs and Practices as an evidence-based practice. In addition, it has been rated promising for each of: improving phobia, panic, and generalized anxiety disorders and symptoms; physical health conditions and symptoms; personal resilience/self-concept; and depression and depressive symptoms. For more read here.


The Center for Self Leadership (CSL) is planning to run a certified Level 1 training in Melbourne in late 2017 & early 2018.

These online and in-person workshops will be useful preparation for a formal certification program.
