Imago Professional Training

Become a Certified Imago Professional Facilitator

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. 

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. 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. 

Course Structure

Level 1 - Fundamentals of Imago Facilitation 

Fundamentals of Imago Facilitation presents some basic concepts of relational competence, including presence, safety and connection.  Participants learn and practice the elements of the Imago Dialogue process and how to apply these in various settings with others who are not familiar with this amazingly effective way of communicating. An understanding of basic human developmental needs and areas of functioning guides the Facilitator in their way of being.  A clear model of current and desired functioning helps Facilitators conceptualize issues that clients may present with, and to help them move towards new possibilities.  Relational ethics and working with diversity are also addressed. 

In addition to the Fundamentals course, Level 1 participants are required to attend a Getting the Love You Want or Keeping the Love You Find workshop.

This course may stand alone or be taken as a pre-requisite for the certification program.
