Do you avoid seeing couples? Have you started dreading your next appointment with a couple? Or love working with couples and are interested in new tools, techniques, and frameworks for treating their issues effectively? The principles and practical interventions of Imago Relationship Therapy can help. In this session, you’ll be introduced to a new way of viewing couples who come to you for help with communicating their needs and frustrations, ending their power struggles, and revitalizing their devitalized marriages. You’ll explore ways to:

  • Guide couples from power struggles to empathy with Imago Dialogue
  • Teach the challenging skill of validating a partner even when you strongly disagree
  • Support couples’ connection by increasing their awareness of the “Space Between”
  • Provide your couples with simple yet powerful tools for creating safety in and after sessions
