IFS Corner

This page is about the development of Internal Family System’s Therapy
and its relationship to other psychological systems, therapy and spiritual traditions.

Internal Family Systems-IFS, is a form of therapy developed by Richard Schwartz, Phd. I first encountered IFS in 1993 attending a workshop given by Dr. Schwartz. I immediately resonated with it, because I had been intuitively engaging a similar form of introspective-psychological work using “internal dialogue”. I participated in the first training group given by Schwartz in 1994. Since then I have used it extensively, researched its lineage and relationship to other psychological systems, healing and spiritual traditions, anthropological research, and developed it further in order to integrate it into a new global paradigm, that transcends the division between east and west and well as traditional and moderns systems. The results of that work are documented in my as yet unpublished book “Wild-Analysis: a new syncretic practice“.
