Internal Family Systems Therapy: Supervision and Consultation showcases the skills of Richard C. Schwartz and other leading IFS consultants and supervisors. Using unique case material, models, and diagrams, each contributor illustrates IFS techniques that assist clinicians in unblending and accessing Self-energy and Self-leadership.

The book features examples of clinical work with issues such as bias, faith, sexuality, and sexual hurts. Individual chapters focus on therapist groups such as Black Therapists Rock and on work with specific populations, including children and their caregivers, veterans, eating disordered clients, therapists with serious illnesses, and couples.

This thought-provoking book offers an opportunity for readers to reflect on their own supervision and consultation (both the giving and receiving of it). It explores what is possible and preferable at different stages of development when using the IFS model.

Reviews and Endorsements

"An admirable achievement. This is an innovative book of many parts with a rich diversity of voices, each one skillfully articulating how IFS can work its wonders in consultation and supervision. Open-hearted collaboration is key to the practice of IFS, and the authors are often vividly transparent in their writing, bringing the multi-faceted consultative work alive on the page. I believe all supervisors and consultants, whether IFS-trained or not, will benefit from a study of this pioneering text." - Jim Holloway, independent counsellor and supervisor (BACP senior accredited)

"Through a wealth of wide-ranging case studies, the book’s contributors demonstrate how bringing unconscious processes into awareness can bring clarity and resolve impasses. Particularly striking is the supervisory stance of respectful curiosity and use of their own internal system as a guide to the work. Although aimed at IFS practitioners, there is much in this very readable book that will speak to practitioners from other approaches." - Els van Ooijen, author of Clinical Supervision Made Easy

"Internal Family Systems Therapy is a truly important contribution to the IFS literature as well as to the entire supervisory endeavor. The breadth and scope of the chapters is matched by the depth of the material presented. The open-hearted and non-shaming approach of IFS supervision will help any clinician provide a safe and enlightening experience for their supervisees." - Lisa Spiegel, MA, LMHC, author of Internal Family Systems Therapy with Children

"For those committed to getting the model inside, this is a crucial addition to the IFS library. Internal Family Systems Therapy has many chapters in which authors model tracking their own parts and discerning what information from parts to share in the consultation process. This modeling helps consultees do the same, bringing authentic communication skillfully into the consultation room and then into the delivery to clients in therapy, education, and coaching. Chapters on implicit bias, training, and consultation to non-dominant groups give needed depth to the reader’s use of the model. Each author gives clear digestible steps toward enhanced practice." - Rina Dubin, IFS lead trainer.
