Ruptured connection in childhood is brought to adult intimate relationships for repair. Romantic love is the selection of a partner who resembles childhood caretakers and the inevitable power struggle is an indication of the failure of both partners to meet each other's needs. Imago Therapy helps couples complete the agenda of romantic love by identifying unmet childhood needs and enabling couples to help meet those needs in each other. This session will demonstrate a process that helps couples experience contact and connection called the Imago Dialogue Process.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To identify the stages of marriage and the clinical issues of each.
  2. To describe the Behavior Change Request Process.
