An Introduction To Imago Theory And Practice For Working With Couples

Brief Outline of Seminar:

Imago Relationship Therapy, developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D., is a comprehensive and practical therapeutic approach for helping people experiencing relationship difficulties to achieve relationships which are safe, passionate and satisfying and which fulfil the potential tasted during the early Romantic Stage. It is a model which sees marriage/committed partnership as the primary therapeutic relationship with the greatest potential for overcoming past hurts and for personal evolution towards one’s fullest potential and spiritual growth.

The Imago is an internal image created during childhood from experiences of relationship which influences our choice of partner and the way we experience things in our adult relationships. During this 2 day training Sophie Slade, Ph.D., will share some of the basic ideas and assumptions of Imago Relationship Therapy. She will demonstrate some of the basic skills for working effectively with couples, and will support you in practicing these skills.

You will leave with a new perspective on how to empower couples to transform their relationships and some new tools to enhance your work. You will get a taste of how to make relationship therapy fun. You will discover why Sophie describes conscious marriage as “making a lifetime commitment to someone with whom you are perfectly incompatible and then behaving unnaturally”!

These two days count towards the Basic Clinical Training accreditation programme for those who wish to pursue further training in Imago.


This CPD Seminar is endorsed by COSRT with 15 CPD hours. You will be awarded with a CPD certificate at the end of the seminar.
