Imago Relationship Therapy is a technique developed by Harville Hendrix to work with couples in a dialogical context that allows the couple to face and help heal their own and each otherís childhood wounds. It can also be used by singles to enhance their capacity to create healthy relationships. Gestalt Therapy has long been recognized as a lively and effective technique for integrating body, mind and spirit in an interpersonal context of increasing awareness and contact. Integrating the two provides powerful and effective tools for helping couples confront their interpersonal issues and enhance their relationship.
