Transformation Through Connection

Around the Beltway Programs

Certified Imago Therapists in various locations in the Washington Metropolitan area and Baltimore offer these free programs. They provide an opportunity for therapists to further explore topics in Imago Therapy, as well as look at the integration of Imago Therapy with other theories. Additionally, therapists experience community support in attending these meetings.

MAIT Book Groups (Washington, D.C. and Baltimore)

In suburban Maryland and Virginia, book discussion groups are hosted by MAIT Certified Imago Therapists. These groups discuss books related to the theory of relationships and couples therapy. Exploring the integration of these ideas into Imago Relationship Therapy enriches the discussion. These groups are also free and enhance community among members.

Community Education Days

MAIT offers ½ day events which are both educational and social in nature. Centered on the theory and practice in Imago, these programs deepen knowledge, provide a way to meet or reconnect with colleagues, do soft marketing and are free. Attendees walk away with a "true feeling of community."

Professional Training Days

Three to four times per year MAIT sponsors training events with national and internationally known Imago Relationship Therapy presenters and trainers, including Maya Kollman, Wendy Patterson, Hedy Schleifer, and Tammy Nelson to name a few. These programs, lasting one to two days, offer MAIT members top quality seminars with CEUs.

    One of the greatest challenges for human beings is to change long standing ways of behaving and interacting with others; this has a huge impact on our work as couple's therapists.  How often do we experience couples doing wonderful work in the office and then discover they cannot do it at home?  I know this has happened to me many times and is often so discouraging to both me and the couple!  

    In this day long workshop, we will discover how enacting, or trying out the change in the office - actually practicing the change of behavior and processing what it feels like and what resources each member of the couple can use -  greatly increases the chance that the couple can sustain the change at home.  Practicing enactments also requires couples to get out of the traditional therapy chairs and move around which can enliven the work and make it more like real life.  And it is so much fun!
