Imago is couple's therapy that posits that all healing is relational. The core couples issue is ruptured connection, replicating the rupture of connection in childhood. The rupture and the defenses against it influence marital choice and the quality of the marital relationship. The core therapeutic challenge is to help couples restore and maintain connection. To that end, Imago therapists facilitate couples to reconnect using a specific dialogical process, that creates emotional safety, in which couples can help heal each other and grow toward wholeness.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list the three stages of committed partnership/ marriage.
  2. To list the three steps of the dialogue process.
