A Revolutionary & Transformative Treatment of PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Substance Abuse – and More! by Richard C. Schwartz
- Learn the Internal Family skill-set from the Pioneering Therapist
- Take away the methods of IFS to help individuals, couples and families
- Teach clients a new way to identify with their “self”, maximize their internal “leadership” qualities and gain control over traumatic experiences
Dr. Schwartz’s presentation will provide a foundation in the Internal Family Systems (IFS) method and its use with attachment and trauma. IFS and its clinical applications will be demonstrated through a lively combination of lecture and discussion.
Developed over the past two decades, the IFS model is one of the fastest growing approaches to psychotherapy today. IFS offers both a conceptual umbrella under which a variety of practices and different approaches can be grounded and guided, and a set of original techniques for creating safety and fostering self-to-self connection in couples and families. Take home skills and tools that you can use in your practice and improve client outcomes.

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
