The Imago Professional Facilitator Program is designed to help professionals in a wide range of fields to become effective at creating stronger and more productive relationships through use of the Imago Dialogue. The program includes up to 16-days of small-group training in addition to post-course projects. Participants are taught to look underneath the surface of conflicts and disagreements in order to reveal the underlying feelings and emotional needs of those involved. By uncovering and addressing these feelings and needs, Imago facilitators can build powerful connections between colleagues, family members, and friends.

In 1988, Harville Hendrix and his partner, Helen LaKelly Hunt, published Getting The Love You Want, a book that established Imago as a leader in the field of relationship education. Since then, Getting The Love You Want has sold more than two million copies and has helped hundreds of thousands of couples develop more passionate and committed relationships. As Imago has continued to evolve as both a theory and a method for developing relational skills, its application to community, organizational, and educational settings – in addition to romantic relationships – has flourished. We believe that many people – clinicians and non-clinicians alike – have the ability and inspiration to help create strong and healthy relationships. The Imago Professional Facilitator Program has been developed to enable non-clinicians to apply Imago theories and techniques to relationships within organizational and professional contexts.

Imago Professional Facilitator training is designed for those who wish to make use of Imago theories and techniques within the specialized context of their own profession. Focusing on the application of Imago processes in non-therapeutic contexts, this training prepares individuals to integrate Imago as both a method and a personal approach within their professional lives. The training is appropriate for a wide range of professionals, including:
• Lawyers, physicians, and other healthcare professionals
• Family advisors in legal and financial fields
• Ministers and clergymen of all faiths
• Professional divorce mediators
• Counselors – in nutrition, school, childhood development, and other areas
• Teachers
• Couples
