The Imago Clinical Training program, or ICT, (formerly Basic Clinical Training) is an intensive, and in-depth introduction to the theory and practice of IRT. Through lecture, demonstration, and experiential learning, you will be provided with the tools and support to help you integrate this unique approach to working with couples into your professional practice. Consistent with the approach itself, we believe that learning comes as much through experience as it does through understanding. We therefore compliment all of our theoretical teaching with direct practice, as well as personal exploration. Our goal is to help therapists develop the skills that will allow a sense of confidence and competence in working with couples, thus skillfully guiding clients into “healing through relationship”. You can expect that this work will be challenging, but at the same time extremely gratifying.
The basic structure of the training is to meet for 3, 4-day sessions, spread out over about a 6 month period. (Note: this structure may vary with some instructors.) This allows you to practice the skills you are learning between training sessions, and to begin to integrate them into your practice. You will then be required to do 6 months of supervision, which provides you with individualized attention and feedback on your work. We have found this structure to be the most effective in learning these skills, and really getting it “in your bones”. Many Imago Therapists go on to take the various Advanced Trainings which we offer graduates to deepen and expand your skill-set
