Online Getting the Love You Want Couples Workshops

Streamlined Essentials

We’ve taken the essential elements of the Getting the Love You Want Couples Workshop and condensed the material into an 8 hour online workshop you can take from the comfort of home.  This workshop is a wonderful way to start your Imago journey. You will learn communication tools to improve the way you and your partner relate to one another, you will find connections to the ways your past may be influencing your present interactions, and you will practice connecting with your partner in a safe and effective way. This weekend workshop is one of the best things you can do for your relationship.

SCHEDULE: Friday 6-8pm Eastern, Saturday and Sunday 10am – 1pm Eastern. You will have some homework Friday and Saturday evening.

COST: $495

WHERE: This workshop will be presented on Zoom. You will receive the Zoom link via email the week of the workshop so please provide a current email at registration.

10 CEs are available for therapists for an additional fee of $30.

Advanced Essentials

Our GLYW Advanced Essentials is the follow-up workshop to our Streamlined Essentials Online weekend. This one-day workshop will expand and strengthen your Imago knowledge with more advanced dialogues, practice sessions, and connection exercises! If you have taken a full GLYW Weekend, this is a great next step for you too!
