partner has a far deeper impact on clients’ minds and bodies than the words uttered in session. In this workshop, we’ll explore how to use the principles of the Imago Dialogue---including mirroring, validating, and empathizing---to lower clients’ anxiety and create an oasis of calm safety that enables them to expand their inner worlds to include other people. We’ll focus on how deep breathing and a soft eye connection can soothe the aroused limbic system, promote relaxation, and encourage confidence and trust.
