Podcast Ep. 37: Frank Anderson, MD, on Breaking Cycles, Generational Healing, and Parenting Under Pressure

In this episode

Dr. Frank Anderson is a sort of super hero in the field of mental health. He’s a psychiatrist, author, speaker, and trauma specialist. He did his residency in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, worked with Bessel van der Kolk at the Trauma Center, is the former director of the Foundation for Self Leadership, a senior trainer of Internal Family Systems therapy and is an advisor to the International Association of Trauma Professionals. He’s also a father of two boys and is an expert on Internal Family Systems and parenting.

What this résumé boils down to is this: there is no better expert than Dr. Anderson to help us kick off cycle-breaking month. His entire career has been dedicated to breaking patterns of trauma, neglect, and emotional wounds. And he doesn’t just do this in his day job. He’s a father of two boys who brings all of training, wisdom, and compassion home to practice what he preaches.

In this episode, we talk about the groundbreaking and mind-blowing mental health therapy called Internal Family Systems, trauma, breaking cycles, parenting through your True Self, and we even touch on psychedelics. This is one of the best conversations we’ve had on the Yes Collective podcast.

  • Dr. Frank Anderson's personal website: https://www.frankandersonmd.com
  • According to the IFS Institute, Internal Family Systems therapy is "a transformative, evidence-based psychotherapy that helps people heal by accessing and loving their protective and wounded inner parts. We believe the mind is naturally multiple and that is a good thing. Just like members of a family, inner parts are forced from their valuable states into extreme roles within us. We also all have a core Self."
  • The Foundation for Self Leadership is a non-profit organization that facilitates access to mental and emotional healing and well-being. It does so by promoting research and advocacy around Internal Family Systems as both a model and a paradigm.
  • Frank's latest book, Transcending Trauma: Healing Complex PTSD with Internal Family Systems
  • Richard Schwartz's latest book, No Bad Parts
  • Kynrgy, the dance and wellness platform Frank mentioned
