Workshop Details

Therapists, this workshop is for you if you already work with couples but want to do it better, or even if you dread your next appointment with a couple or avoid doing couples therapy altogether but would like to. Join Carol Kramer for this hands-on learning experience. This training for therapists will introduce the basic theory and therapeutic processes of Imago Relationship Therapy and will help you understand the core issues all couples face. Together we will cover how to:

• Transform destructive conflict into creative tension

• Move couples from "communicating" ineffectively to deep dialogue that restores connection and evokes joy

• Enhance couples' mutual curiosity, appreciation and sense of humor

• Emphasize the potential beneath the negative fallout of childhood wounds

Through Imago Relationship Therapy you can learn a way of offering couples the option to create a conscious partnership that restores original connection and joy, and heals the wounds of the past. Methods will include lectures, demonstrations, practice and videos.

The training is credited towards certification as an Imago Relationship Therapist.
