The Imago Dialogue Process is a structured interaction between intimate partners that creates Safety so they can drop their defenses, become vulnerable and experience connecting. Using the structure enables couples to talk about any subject with creative engagement and without polarizing.
Since life is lived in the Space-Between and remembered in the Space-Within, the quality of “interaction” between intimate partners determines the content of subjective life. Using the power of Imago Dialogue facilitated by the therapist, couples are empowered to achieve their own transformation. Participants at this presentation will hear and see a demonstration of the essences of the process.

The benefits of therapy tend to be confined to the clinic and to targeted clients with specific complaints. This workshop describes the process and outcome of distributing--face to face and through social media--the core therapeutic processes to the general public. Participants will experience the structure and process of a Safe Conversation, a relational psychoeducational process, the strategies and tactics of cultural healing and invited to join in developing a relational culture.
Each couple describes a core scene which happens over and over again from which they want relief and therapists attempt to offer it. Imago Couples Therapy posits that while each core scene is unique, the theme of each couple’s story is identical: ruptured connection and the desire for restoration. All symptoms are branches on this tree. This workshop will develop and demonstrate that theme, and describe and demonstrate a singular intervention that helps couples restore connection.
Ever since Freud’s patient dubbed psychoanalysis a “talking cure,” most forms of therapy include someone talking to a professional. This workshop posits that therapy consists not so much in the action of talking but in the experience of how one is listened to while they talk, and that the more accurate name for successful therapy is the “listening cure.”

Like walking a tightrope, working with couples in trouble requires focus and balance. Both partners want you to take their side, and, at times, it’s easy to get swallowed up by the intense emotionality of the sessions. So, how can you maintain a sense of balance and create an atmosphere in which healing can take place? In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use the principles of Imago Relationship Therapy to connect with the issues the couple brings to you and transform the emotional temperature of the session.
In this workshop, using lectures, demonstrations and practice, participants will distinguish between the individual and relational paradigm, and learn how to use the Imago Dialogue Process to help couples create a conscious partnership in which difference is accepted, conflict is transformed into creative tension, love is born and sustained, and personal healing and growth are facilitated.
Inevitable conflict, the second stage of all committed relationships, is growth "trying to happen." This session will address core issues most couples face, working with difficult couples, how to transform destructive conflict into creative tension through the dialogue process and how to discern when a couple can or cannot be helped. Participants will be introduced to a therapy process that transforms conflict into connection and facilitates couples being healers for each other.
