Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Dear all,

As we sat down to write this note to the IFS community about our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) efforts, we recognized that while we have launched important projects and made progress, we also wanted to take a step back and create a statement of commitment. We wanted to be specific about our goals going forward, focus our efforts and be transparent and accountable to the community.

In Memory of Rich Simon

Dear Friend,


I’m writing to speak for my grieving parts about a terrible loss for myself and for the field of psychotherapy. Rich Simon, the editor or the Psychotherapy Networker, died last week. Some of you will know him as the wild showman who hosted the Networker’s annual conference and was the star of the opening musical extravaganza each year. You can get a sense of his professional contribution from these loving tributes:

A Tribute and Transition for IFSI CEO Jon Schwartz

I hope you are staying safe and sane as we enter the 6th month of this COVID crisis. I’m writing today to thank my brother Jon for his years of devoted service as CEO of IFSI. As some of you may know we are currently engaged in a search for a new CEO, and before that transition I want to be sure to share with the community all the important ways Jon impacted this organization.
