Advanced Training in Imago Therapy


Characterological Growth: The Three-Day Experience

This three day experience deepens theoretical understanding of characterological adaptations to pain through experiential processing at a personal level. In the Talmud there is a quote, “We can’t see the world as it is; we see it as we are.” This profound training takes the defense of projection and highlights the many ways we put it to use. As long as projection is available to us, we are out of connection with ourselves and others. This personal training is both exquisitely simple and complex at the same time. Previous participants describe the training as “extraordinary and transformational.

This is a required course for all Advanced Imago Certifications.

The Attuned Therapist-Working with reactivity and resistance

As therapists we expect a little chaos. However, there are couples who just seem to challenge us every step of the way. Using a growing understanding of the relational paradigm, we will explore how to use our centered, embodied and attuned presence to assist clients in making sense of the anxiety which motivates them into reactivity. We will explore interventions to assist them to move toward each other, co-regulating affect and moving into safety and joy.

IMAGO and APA CEUs- 24

Brilliant At the Basics

This course is designed to review, deepen and expand the theory and clinical skills taught in the Imago Clinical Training. You will learn to move beyond the mechanics of facilitation, and learn the artful and creative use of sentence stems, doubling, and focusing. You will also learn to integrate the four “meta theories” of Imago with these deepening tools, making the theory practical in everyday use with couples. This also gives the therapist a lens to make interventions based on the couples’ level of differentiation, safety, and developmental stage.
