Welcome to Session 3 of Couples Therapy: Today and Tomorrow with Harville Hendrix. In this session, Hendrix, the co-developer of Imago Relationship Theory and the co-founder of Imago Relationship International, will delve into the basic principles of the Imago approach to authentic connection between couples.
Hendrix will discuss how to help the resistance to love that was founded in childhood experiences, how to help partners learn to heal wounds from each other’s childhoods, the basic skills of mirroring and empathy, and how couples can validate each other—even when they disagree.
We encourage you to use the Comment Boards as a vehicle for reflection and discussion with each other and with the presenters, to bring up any relevant thoughts or questions. What was most striking to you about this session?
