Talking is among the most dangerous things people do, and listening is the most infrequent, and thus the source of conflict that needs a solution. Through the practice of "Safe Conversations," a structured dialogue process, Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD aim to help people, in all human ecosystems, experience safety in all conversations in the service of creating a relational world, shifting the perspective from the age of the individual to the age of relationship—by helping people build healthy relationships.
In this two-hour web conference, participants will learn this new way to talk that makes conversation safe and achieves connection, and they will be introduced to the new relationship and brain science that supports it. Helen and Harville co-created Imago Relationship Theory and Therapy over 25 years ago and today is practiced by over 1,200 Imago therapists in 37 countries. The process is proven effective with couples and families as well as corporations, congregations, and schools.
How we interact with each other is the key to our emotional, physical and economic health. By teaching a process that facilitates relational change, Helen and Harville aim to establish healthy relationship as this society’s primary cultural value which will lead to greater civil conversation and foster a legacy of stability and peace for generations to come.

Years of wisdom and experience of presenters - BRAVO. - Janet Brodsky, LICSW
I've been familiar with Hendrix work for years but have never seen him speak. Nor have I seen Hunt. It was wonderful to meet two such self-effacing and brilliant folks who shared so freely. - Suzanne A. Holmes, EdD, LPC
Amazingly insightful and relevant. I think that listening to them both cleared up some confusion I had after reading the book Getting the Love You Want. - Clifford Jacobson, LMFT
I enjoyed the layout that offered a ground up approach of Imago. I was not very familiar with it and they did a good job describing the basics and building on it. - Rebecca Frank, MA, LPCC, NCC
