Take the 30 Day
Zero Negativity Challenge!
As you may or may not know part of Harville & Helen’s story was realizing that “negativity” was destroying their relationship. (Negativity is defined as any transaction that the other experiences as hurtful.) Using a calendar, they challenged themselves to track their “zero negativity” days, a simple tool which became transformational and started their pathway toward healing and renewal. Geared towards couples who have some experience with Imago theory (such as taking a workshop or working with an Imago therapist.)
Of all the exercises in Imago Relationship Therapy, we now regard Imago Dialogue as being the most effective tool for satisfying our innate yearning for wholeness and connection. Developed with my wife Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D., Dialogue is the language of love in all relationships. Ultimately, the three steps of Dialogue - mirroring, validating, and empathizing - allow us to
discover the other,
grow into our potential,
and experience connection.
We invite you to "live a life of Dialogue" by exploring the resources on this website. You can find information on couples therapy and workshops at Imago Relationships International
