A Brief Introduction to Imago Relationship Therapy

"From Conflict to Compassion"

Clinical Instructor with the Imago International Training Institute (IITI)

Course Description

In this seven-hour workshop, therapists will be introduced to Imago Relationship Therapy and to its processes.  Clinicians working with distressed couples need a comprehensive theory to explain the relational paradigm and how the history of each individual in the couple, influences the present relationship between them. 

We will also explain why partners fight with each other and how their frustrations are a signal of their childhood unmet needs and result in distancing and disconnection in the couple.

This workshop, while only an introduction to the power of Imago Relationship Therapy, will enable you to experience for yourself the impactful intervention of the Imago Dialogue in couple therapy and provide you with a taste of the potency of the “space between” in couple dyads. 

We will focus on creating safety, deepening empathy and connection, providing feedback, and using « Appreciation Dialogue » and the «  Imago Dialogue. »

You will practice and experience using Imago skills though live demonstrations and by working in dyads to begin to see the effectiveness of these interventions and understand why they are so powerful and impactful.


Participants will be able to:

  • Learn the theoretical  basis of Imago Relationship Therapy
  • Describe the concept of the Imago and its role in couple dynamics
  • Describe the stages of a couple relationship
  • Facilitate the Mirroring exercise, the Imago Dialogue and the Imago Appreciation Dialogue all of which will help to develop safety in the couple, deepen empathy and connection
CAMFT members will earn 7 CEU credits for this event.  Please register here.
