Imago therapy helps couples and individuals work through conflict and restore connection.
Doing Imago Relationship Therapy is the first-ever book on Imago Relationship Therapy from its creators geared toward therapists.
Developed by Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt in the 1980s, Imago Relationship Therapy helps couples—and everyone in significant relationships—shift from conflict to connection by transforming the quality of their interactions. Now, for the first time, the essential principles and practices of Imago are presented for the benefit of both novice and seasoned clinicians.
Using the Imago processes, couples create a Conscious Partnership in which they feel safe, fully alive, and joyful, learning to be mutually empathic for each other’s childhood challenges and present to each other without judgment. Hendrix and Hunt help couples learn and practice Imago Dialogue, moving from blame and reactivity to mutual acceptance, affirmation, and empathy, thus deepening their connection.
Joining theory and practice with elegance, and filled with examples, exercises, and dialogues, this book is one no couple’s therapist can afford to be without.
