Product description


"Imago Therapy is a brief and effective approach to treating couples. All therapists need to understand and be able to use this model. Dr. Luquet clearly describes the basic ingredients for successful relationships as well as the six basic sessions used in Imago Short-Term Therapy. This book should be required reading for students as well as practicing professionals." - Jon Carlson, Distinguished Professor, Governors State University and author, Time for a Better Marriage

"Short-Term Couples Therapy is a user-friendly guide to the powerful force of Imago Therapy. It’s succinct, practical, and ready to be used. Very readable; very hands-on." - Pat Love, author of The Truth About Love

"Luquet offers a practical protocol for therapists rquired to pack effective therapy into six sessions.  Luquet targets a therapist audience well and provides a finely-honed blueprint for therapy.  Many therapists struggle with finding ways to do effective couples work in just a few sessions.  For therapists in this position, Luquet provides a valuable resource in this Imago therapy protocol that leads couples to integrate present and past work in a format that is both educational and experiential."  - Susan N. Perkins, M.A., Virginia Tech, in Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy

Very good delivery with no hassle. Book is good for setting couples onto the Imago trail and giving them the range of dialogues with basic backing theory. It's well set out and easy to access.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imago Therapy made available in a clear workbook approach. 15 Nov. 1999
By Dana Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Certified Imago Therapist, I use this book with all the couples I see. It provides an overview of Imago Therapy, organizes it into 6 sessions, and provides clear instructions for learning the skills that create a safe and passionate relationship. This book includes the curriculum of the training Imago Therapists receive at the cost of thousands of dollars. Although the book was written for therapists, it is easily accessible to anyone interested in improving their relationship.
