 What is the GTLYW Workshop?   

This intensive 22-hour workshop for couples is based on the work of Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of the best-selling books, Getting the Love You Want - A Guide for Couples, Keeping the Love you Find - A Guide for Singles and his newest, Giving the Love that Heals- A Guide for Parents. It is based on Imago Relationship Therapy, developed by Dr. Hendrix, which includes the belief that relationships form a catalyst for personal growth, healing childhood wounds and becoming a loving and fully mature adult. This Workshop will help you understand and cooperate with that process and will offer you specific ways for attaining personal, relational, and spiritual growth, as well as obtaining nurturing and care within your relationship.

  What you can expect:   

This Workshop includes brief lectures, guided imagery, self-reflection, written exercises, and communication processes.   

While couples are invited to participate and to build a supportive group atmosphere, they are not pressured into unwelcomed self-disclosure. The workshop emphasizes partners sharing with each other. You will not need to share with the larger group unless you so choose. You will be asked to share and communicate with your partner in structured ways designed to enhance understanding and empathy. Confidentiality is maintained in a safe and comfortable environment.

"This provides a great start toward recovery in my marriage."
