This will give you a full review and an experience of the theory and skills. There is usually a two to three month break between each module to allow for the integration of the material, and also for practice time with each other and your couples. Monthly meetings between training days will support your confidence in being able to use your new understanding in your work immediately.
You will bring a recording of your work during the second module and again during Module Three and Four for supervision by an Imago Faculty member. Six consultation/supervision sessions are included over the course of the training and integrated into the last four days of the training, dates TBD. After all four modules you may submit a final recording to obtain your Certification.
The cost is $4,000 for the complete certification program. Payment plans are available. There are no refunds, but if there is a personal emergency, arrangements can be made to transfer fees to other modules.
