The relationship paradigm provides the couples therapist an effective approach to therapy that creates change by shifting the focus of attention from the individual partner to the relationship itself. Our featured guest speakers, John Gottman, Ph.D. and Julie Schwartz Gottman, Ph.D., base their approach to couples therapy on three decades of research with thousands of couples. Through research based interventions and exercises, the Gottman Method helps couples identify and break through barriers to positive change in their relationships. Our understanding of change as Imago practitioners is evolving as we gain new insights into how to get the greatest value from the central intervention, the Behavior Change Request. Often it is the failure of couples to follow through on an agreed upon request that provides the most effective material for a dialogue that can explore and overcome resistance to change.

Sentence completion is more than a means of facilitating communication. It is a means of making explicit what had been implicit, of making conscious what had been subconscious. It is a “doorway into the self.” (Branden, 1985). In this experiential workshop, we will explore the subtleties of being creative and intentional in the use of both “standard” and “spontaneous” sentence stems. You will gain experience with “doubling” and “focusing” to help your couples embody their speech and access feelings. We will discuss when, and with which clients, each of these methods is most effective, and look at our own styles, and where our growth edges are in this work. (2 CEs) (1(,Æ*1(,GD

Why does love so often fade away when conflict emerges? Imago’s Relationship Fitness Kit gives couples the tools to stay connected.

“I immediately saw in the DVD what I could have done differently…It was an incredible awakening.” -Robyn H.

“Through Conflict to Connection” offers real-life examples of people learning to improve a loving relationship by coolly exploring the hotbutton issues unique to each partnership. The kit is based around a 60minute documentary-style movie, which includes extraordinary footage of actual couples experiencing Imago therapy, and includes Couples Handbooks to help you and your partner through the journey to connection.
