Dick Schwartz

2017-2019 Faculty

Dr. Richard Schwartz developed the Internal Family Systems (IFS) approach. He is a Mobius Senior Expert and the co-author of the most widely used family therapy text in the United States.

To learn more about Dick’s work:

  • Read Dick’s articles on the IFS model in the Mobius Strip: Evolution of the Internal Family Systems Model and a follow-on essay examining The Larger Self
  •  Watch the 7 minute teaser video of Dick Schwartz’s session at the 2017 Annual Gathering and the full keynote (57 minutes) which offers a wonderful encapsulation of how the model came about, more on the different parts of ourselves, the nature of the self-led person and a guided exercise for working with your inner critic to have it stand back.
