Raising Good Humans

Raising Good Humans

Do you ever feel ashamed or quick to anger with your kids? Join me in conversation with the incredible Dr. Richard Schwartz, who developed the Internal Family Systems model. This paradigm allows us to separate our Self into parts and examine them with compassion.



This week on Comes A Time Oteil and Mike welcome forward-looking psychotherapist, Richard Schwartz, onto the show. You’ll hear the guys talk about the genesis and benefits of Richard’s Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy, different religious interpretations of the “Self,” and the importance of listening to negative parts of yourself instead of ignoring them. Richard also walks Oteil through an exercise to help him sort out his “negative” internal parts, and fills the guys in on practical tips on finding higher versions of themselves, while detailing the developmental process and applications of IFS.

“Episode 31: Internal Family Systems with Dick Schwartz”

Joshua Malina

“Buckle your seatbelts! In this incredible interview with Dr. Richard Schwartz, creator of the now popular therapeutic method Internal Family Systems (IFS), we talk about the world he has discovered inside his and his patients' minds, whether to understand these descriptions as useful metaphors for deep work or as bona fide depictions of the characters that live in our minds! To boot, Dr. Schwartz helps me find an exile of my own. This episode is unlike anyone ever recorded on the podcast before -- I hope you enjoy!”

Psychedelics Today: Vital Psychedelic Conversations

In this episode of Vital Psychedelic Conversations, Kyle and David interview the author of No Bad Parts: Healing Trauma and Restoring Wholeness with the Internal Family Systems Model, and the creator of the IFS model itself: Dr. Richard C. Schwartz.

“I think the psychedelic world has been conditioned by a kind of passivity approach to being present with people and just trusting their own process. And that can do a certain amount of good, but you’re also missing the opportunities [for] doing some really deep healing.” – Dr. Richard Schwartz

The New Man: Hosted by Tripp Lanier - From Inner Critic to Inner Peace. Richard Schwartz, IFS, No Bad Parts.

" "Does your inner critic keep you from enjoying your life?

Does your fear of looking weak or lazy drive you into the ground?

And why does there seem to be a battle between the part of us that wants to do great things and another part that just wants to play small?

Richard Schwartz introduced IFS or Internal Family Systems many years ago. Since then, the process has been used to heal, strengthen, and align the minds of many people — including myself. Listen here
