If you dread your next appointment with a couple, avoid doing couples therapy altogether but would like to, or love couples and want to do it better, this course is for you. This is a rare opportunity to study and learn a theory and methodology that will help you love working with couples from the co-founder of Imago Relationship Therapy and one of the masters of marital therapy, Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. Not only will you discover a radical new theory of couplehood, you will be immersed in watching demonstrations of the dialogue process and getting some coaching as you practice this transformational process.

Imago Relationship Therapy, a theory and therapy of couplehood, integrates, synthesizes, and extends the insights of the major Western psychological systems, behavioral science, and spiritual disciplines into a uniquely comprehensive and systematic system of love relationships. Imago Therapy translates the theory into practice.

The “Imago” is a composite image in the unconscious of the significant character traits and behaviors of childhood primary caretakers. Our unconscious pairs us with an “Imago match” an individual who is like our caretakers in significant ways to recreate our childhood psychological dynamics in an attempt to heal the central wounds we carry. Imago Relationship Therapy uses this context to transform relationships into a therapeutic encounter for each partner’s psychological and spiritual self-completion.

This skill-building, week-long seminar will give you the means of getting to the heart of most couples’ most profound power struggle - their failure to get each other to meet leftover developmental needs from childhood. Instead, each partner tries to coerce the other to match the distorted inner image of their early caretakers (called the Imago) through blame, shame and criticism. Through Imago Relationship Therapy you’ll learn a way of offering couples another option - to create a conscious and committed relationship in which they increase their capacity to offer acceptance and compassion to both themselves and their partner.
