In this podcast, I will interview Betsy Thurston, a dietician who also specializes in the use of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy as a unique tool in treating her eating disorder clients. The founder of IFS, Dr. Richard Schwartz describes IFS as “a powerfully transformative, evidence-based model of psychotherapy.” We will discuss how she has seen IFS work for her clients who struggle with eating disorders.


In this podcast you will learn:

1. What is Internal Family Systems Therapy?
2. How is IFS different from other therapies?
3. How can IFS help patients heal from food and body image issues?
