Imago & the Arts Therapies: Enhancing Communication, Strengthening Connection

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 809

The Imago dialogue is a mirroring process that enables each partner to feel heard, empathized with, and validated. This is a powerful tool for communicating safely, exploring emotional issues, and restoring lost connection. Imago Relationship Therapy can be used with couples and families as well as with individuals who want help in their personal and professional relationships. In this workshop, we will learn how to use the Imago dialogue to help couples listen empathically and connect with each other. We will also learn how to use creative therapies such as art therapy and psychodrama tools to deepen the process. By directly accessing one’s feelings through creative mirroring, each partner becomes more available for empathic connection. As we discover a mirror in the other’s eyes, we not only feel accepted and acknowledged, we take a step toward building an inner mirror where we can see our true selves.
