FRANK G. ANDERSON, M.D.

Dr. Frank Anderson

Committed to promoting compassion, hope, healing and non-violence in a troubled world, Dr. Frank Anderson specializes in understanding and treating the effects of psychic pain and trauma. He travels around the world as a proponent and instructor of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) psychotherapeutic modality—an evidence-based treatment that offers an accelerated path to self-awareness and healing of emotional wounds. Unique as both a psychiatrist and psychotherapist, he specializes in the treatment of trauma and dissociation in his private practice and is passionate about teaching brain-based psychotherapy and integrating current neuroscience knowledge with the IFS model of therapy.

MARTHA SWEEZY, PH.D.

Martha Sweezy, Ph.D., is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, a program consultant and supervisor at Cambridge Health Alliance, and the former assistant director and director of training for the dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) program at the Cambridge Health Alliance. She is the co-editor/co-author of the books Internal Family Systems Therapy: New Dimensions, and Innovations and Elaborations in Internal Family Systems Therapy, as well as co-author of the book Intimacy from the Inside Out: Courage and Compassion in Couple Therapy. She has a therapy and consultation practice in Northampton, MA.

RICHARD C. SCHWARTZ, PHD

Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., developed the Internal Family Systems (IFS) in response to clients’ descriptions of experiencing various parts—many extreme—within themselves. He noticed that when these parts felt safe and had their concerns addressed, they were less disruptive and would accede to the wise leadership of what Dr. Schwartz came to call the “Self.” Because IFS locates the source of healing within the client, the therapist is freed to focus on guiding the client’s access to his or her true Self and supporting the client in harnessing its wisdom.

He has published four books and over 50 articles about IFS. His books include Internal Family Systems Therapy, Introduction to the Internal Family Systems Model, and co-author of Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, the Mosaic Mind, and Metaframeworks. In 2000, he founded The Center for Self Leadership. Dr. Schwartz lives and practices in Brookline, MA and is on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry, Harvard School of Medicine.

"A unique and effective roadmap for working with parts of the self to resolve trauma and attachment injury. Concise, accessible, and grounded in an attitude of kindness and respect for the client, the manual includes vivid case transcripts, clear solutions for therapeutic challenges, and engaging exercises for clients to complete. With these practical and accessible interventions, therapists of all persuasions will find this book to be an invaluable addition to their toolbox, one that could revolutionize their clinical work."
-- Pat Ogden, PhD, Founder & Educational Director, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute

"Without losing the compassionate, gentle essence of the Internal Family Systems model, this workbook helps clients and therapists alike to have a structure and guiding hand through the struggle and pain of trauma treatment. This is a workbook that touches the heart rather than simply managing the symptoms.
-- Janina Fisher, PhD, International Trauma Expert and Author of Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors

"My staff and I have been using the exercises and meditations with our clients in our trauma-informed eating disorder group with positive feedback from all! The introduction is so clear for those unfamiliar with the model. Thank you for this wonderful resource."
