About the Training

Be an Agent of Change in our World!

In almost every sphere of our lives we have to deal with relationships - at home, at work, at play. Good relationships are major contributing factors in our happiness and well-being. Bad relationships are associated with ill-health and general life dissatisfaction. Creating good relationships with others can be extremely challenging and at times distressing when we or they get triggered into reactivity.

Imago Relationship Theory knows about relationships and how to improve them. It knows about effective communication and how to work through conflicts. Imago emerged from the intimate and extensive study of couples and has expanded way beyond into many other domains where good relationships are important for good functioning, whether one on one, in groups or in organizations.

The Imago Professional Facilitator Training provides you with the theory, the tools and the skills to have better relationships yourself and to impact people in your environment in a positive way. It trains you to take Imago theory and practice into your areas of expertise so that you can make a difference and become an agent of change in the world.

The 2017 training in London will be a very special and possibly unique event.  Four highly experienced and creative Imago Faculty members from around the world, with many years of expertise in the particular module they will be teaching, are joining together to present the training.

Change relationships, change society

Do you find yourself walking away from conversations and meetings frustrated when others don’t seem to listen or respond to your ideas? At times, do others argue with you or get offended or hurt by something you say? Most of us have experienced this with business associates, family members, or even friends.

The Imago Professional Facilitator Program offers a new way to communicate and influence others to reach your objectives and improve relationships. The Imago Professional Facilitator Program is the result of the millions of people touched by the foundational work of Drs Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, coauthors of The New York Times Best Seller “Getting the Love You Want.” These vital skills for building stronger relationships are now redesigned for those who want to add facilitation, team building, and conflict management to their professional expertise.
