Richard Schwartz Receives “The Hope Merchant” Painting

Richard Schwartz, PhD, accepted a custom painting, entitled The Hope Merchant as a gift of gratitude from me.  I presented the painting to him during an IFS training at the Cambridge Health Alliance in April.  Thank you Dr. Schwartz for founding a paradigm that is used in psychotherapy, addictions treatment, conflict negotiations, childhood education, and as a personal daily practice.   IFS extends compassion and hope in a world of complexity.
