Internal Family Systems with Dick Schwartz

Click here to view this episode's transcript.

We all have multiple parts inside ourselves and that's actually a good thing because we need these parts and all their resources and qualities. But these parts carry burdens. Internal Family Systems creates inner and outer connectedness by helping people access their Self and come to understand and heal their parts. This episode is part of a longer conversation that Esther and founder of Internal Family Systems, Dr. Dick Schwartz, had on her membership platform Sessions with Esther Perel, where Esther hosts conversations  with colleagues in and around the mental health space.
