  3. Discuss the concept of the imago and the role it plays in partner selection and subsequent stages of adult relationships.
  4. Work with a couple’s resistance, flow with it and keep volatile couples in dialogue
  5. Demonstrate dialogical skills to assist couples in restructuring conflict and frustration, resolving adult and childhood rage, bringing them into a healing relationship, and guiding them from unconscious to conscious relating (moving hem from reactivity to intentionality).
  6. Demonstrate skills to assist couples in increasing validation and empathy and achieve a deeper level of commitment and intimacy.
  7. Focus on their own personal characterological growth and thus be more able to deepen client’s affect, getting them in touch with childhood pain, and thus helping them find healing in the adult intimate relationship.
  8. Empower couples to continue the work of healing after therapy is terminated.

DVDs:

Participants are required to submit DVDs of their clinical work throughout the training program
During Level I of the training two tapes are required for supervision purposes. One of these tapes will be of a couple using the Imago Dialogue, another of a couple using the Behavior Change Request (BCR) dialogue process. At this stage the trainer will be looking for proficient use of the process steps set out in the “Getting The Love You Want” workshop manual.

During Level II of the training, several tapes may be requested of your clinical work, which will be used to provide feedback on your application of Imago processes.
After a minimum of 6 months of consultation, you may submit a tape which will be evaluated as the final stage in your Certification. In this tape we will be looking for the following:

  1. Demonstrating good technical use of an Imago process. The process used should be either the Imago Dialogue or the BCR dialogue
  2. Demonstrating proficiency in seamless flow, and portability of skills
  3. Achieving outcomes during the session, including transforming negative energy to positive, deepening connection, and meeting the couple’s childhood needs.
