Imago Clinical Training for Therapists: Days 1 and 2 , Teaching Compassion in Intimate Relationship
November 9–11, 2014
This program has been cancelled.
This two-day course is designed to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and applications of Imago Relationship Therapy, a powerful and effective approach to couples counseling. You will learn how to hold couples in “Dialogue”, helping them to deepen their connection and work productively with conflicts and concerns. We will also teach how to integrate Relational Neuroscience, Attachment and Developmental Theory, and mindfulness practices into your work with couples, and explore how Imago relates to the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh on love and relationships.
Attendance at the Getting The Love You Want couples workshop, which is being presented during the previous two days, is highly recommended though not required for this training. For those who are interested, this intro also serves as the first two days of the comprehensive 12-day training that leads to certification as an Imago Therapist™.

Ben Cohen, PhD, has been in private practice in Boulder and Denver for over 20 years, and has led over 80 “Getting the Love You Want” Couples Workshops in Colorado and nationally. He is Co-Dean of the Faculty of Imago Relationships International, and a former adjunct faculty at The Naropa University. He has also had an active meditation practice for over 25 years and integrates Eastern and Western traditions in his teaching and practice. He is endlessly fascinated by both the process of opening to the nature of mind in retreat settings and how that opening translates to daily life.
