A book by the best-selling authors of Getting the Love You Want and Keeping the Love You Find. Its been more than three decades since Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt the best-selling authors of Getting the Love You Want and Keeping the Love You Find created Imago Relationship Therapy. Their concept of the conscious marriage introduced a new paradigm for understanding the dynamics of couples. Since that time more than two thousand clinicians in twenty-eight countries have adopted and implemented this highly effective form of couples therapy. This groundbreaking book offers an overview of the highly successful Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) and the relationship of IRT with preceding schools of thought such as psychoanalytic theory, family systems theories, affect theory, and self-psychology. At the heart of IRT is a three-step process involving mirroring (reflecting) the partners feelings, validating the partners point of view, and the expressing empathy toward the partners feelings. Imago Relationship Therapy traces IRTs history and explosive growth and outlines the differences and similarities between Imago theory and other models of couples therapy. The book also presents some of the ideas of prominent Imago thinkers, such as the central role of connectivity and the problem of envy in committed relationships.
