From Conflict to Compassion

A Brief Introduction to Imago Relationship Therapy

Presented by: Pierrette Richard

Psychologist and Clinical Instructor with the Imago International Training Institute (IITI)

Deadline to register is midnight April 18, ADT

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.
