Information about the Conference
The Couples Conferences have become a leading vehicle for learning the applications of the latest research on facilitating treatment with couples. At this Conference, you will learn from leading-edge theorists and practitioners as they define, describe and discuss differing approaches that initially promote closeness and those that move toward managing difference and facilitating differentiation. By the end of this Conference, you will have advanced and refined your own thinking about how to approach the challenge of facilitating intimacy. Attendees will increase their clinical effectiveness by-
- Comparing and contrasting differing professional perspectives and translating these into specific interventions
- Evaluating basic principles and techniques of contemporary schools of therapy
- Utilizing multi-level therapeutic communication
- Comprehending the commonalities that underlie successful clinical work
- Appreciating the historical development of psychotherapeutic disciplines
Harville and Helen’s Presentations – Sunday April 5th
Workshop (9:45am – 11:45am ) – The Space-Between: Resonance And Wonder
Much of couple’s therapy is focused on helping couples dissolve conflict and develop healthy relational practices. Participants in this workshop will discover how to help couples go beyond conflict resolution and create and sustain resonance and wonder in the Space-Between.
- Discuss the meaning of the Space-Between.
- Describe resonance and wonder as a therapy outcome.
- Practice a wonder exercise.
Keynote (1:00pm – 2:00pm) – Safe Conversations: From The Clinic To The Culture
Safe Conversations is an initiative to take relational science from the clinic to the culture and facilitate a transition from an individualistic to a relational civilization. Since talking is the most dangerous thing people do, since listening is the most infrequent, and since difference is the source of polarization, this relational intervention helps people talk without criticizing, listen without judgment and connect beyond their differences. Delivered globally, this relational technology could create a safe world in which everyone would thrive.
- Describe the technology of Safe Conversations.
- Discuss the emergence of a relational culture.
- Teach the Safe Conversations process to others.
Workshop (2:15PM –4:15PM) – Safe Conversations: A Short Exposure

Participants in this workshop will engage this technology as a personal experience and learn to share it with others. Participation in this training counts towards a SC certificate.
- Describe the steps of Safe Conversations.
- Discuss the function of safety in relational thriving.

Harville Hendrix, Helen LaKelly Hunt & Carol Kramer
If you dread your next appointment with a couple, avoid doing couples therapy altogether but would like to, or love couples and want to do it better, join Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D., and Carol Kramer, LICSW, in this rare opportunity to study with the founders of Imago Relationship Therapy. In this training, you will learn to look at couple’s therapy through a new lens and to help them create a transformed, rather than just a better, relationship. This includes:
Revisioning their relationship as a partnership rather than a competition
Talking about anything without polarizing
Shifting from judgment to curiosity
Awakening from their symbiotic trance
Traversing seven stages of differentiation
Engaging in the Zero Negativity and Affirmations process
Connecting current struggles to childhood issues
Integrating their brains
Becoming relationally competent
Creating and sustaining a Conscious Partnership
Using Imago Relationship Therapy, a theory-based skill-building training process, will help you as a therapist help couples transcend their biggest challenge: accepting difference and co-creating a Conscious Partnership that meets developmental needs and restores full aliveness and joy. Each day will include lectures, videos, live demonstrations and the practice of Imago processes.
This workshop is open to all professionals who want to use the Imago process in a variety of contexts. Imago therapists may want a review. Certified therapists may want it to count for two days towards certification as an Imago therapist by the Imago International Training Institute or, for non-clinical professionals, it counts for two days towards becoming an Imago Facilitator. It also meets the requirements of Relationships First for a certificate as a Safe Conversations Leader.
