Developed by psychologist and best-selling author Harville Hendrix, PhD, imago therapy is a groundbreaking approach to short-term therapy with couples. The "Imago" is the unconscious image we hold of our parents. Hendrix believes that people select their mates by seeking "Imago matches"-individuals like their parents in salient ways. This professional book shows therapists how to use the imago approach to aid couples in improving their relationship and helping each other work through unresolved childhood issues.
