New York, NY (PRWEB) March 6, 2011
Imago Relationship International is offering a free teleconference to individuals and couples to teach essential relationship skills, and introduce the dynamics of the highly successful and acclaimed Imago Relationship Workshops. “It is our mission at Imago to be a catalyst for building healthy and emotionally intimate marriages and partnerships, one couple at a time,” says Tim Atkinson, Executive Director of Imago Relationship International.
“Our culture glorifies drama. Reality television shows, which are on the rise in quantity and popularity, feature quarrelling and conflicted relationships without teaching viewers solutions to problems. It is human nature to observe other people. And when we see others at their worst, it gives us a sense that our lives are a little better,” explains Atkinson. “However, couples, in real life suffer greatly when they cannot resolve issues.”
Imago relationship therapists and married couple Donna and David Bowman will conduct the interactive teleconference, held March 16th, 8-9pm EST. Attendees will learn compassion, empathy, and how to connect with their partners through inspiring, humorous, and personal stories by the presenters.

“Couples fight without understanding why, and they don’t know how to stop or end conflict,” says Atkinson. Imago Relationship therapists teach couples how to communicate, connect, and develop emotional intimacy.
“Talking about issues with your partner can either bring you closer or drive you farther apart,” says Atkinson, who adds that the key to successful dialogue between couples is skillful communication and connection that most people have never been trained for.
The more passionate partners are about an issue, the higher the likelihood that conflict will ensue. “Passion can be a two edged sword. The emotion can bring great inspiration, but unbridled passion can have devastating effects. We teach couples how to express their needs skillfully, which gives partners the satisfaction of having their needs met without creating distance or separation,” explains Atkinson.
Imago Relationships International helps couples restore connection. Weekend couples workshops are available worldwide. Imago has certified over 2,000 couples therapists to guide couples through a process which was developed by co-founders Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD. Imago first came to public attention through the New York Times best seller, "Getting the Love You Want". Oprah Winfrey dubbed Hendrix "The Marriage Whisperer". Calling him "Her favorite therapist" Oprah has invited him on her show 17 times.
