Couples workshop: Guilford Health Relationships Initiative event February 18

Renowned relationship therapists Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelley Hunt will speak at UNCG
Saturday, February 18, 2017. They will present their day-long Safe Conversations workshop, which is grounded in the Imago Relationship Theory that Dr. Hendrix and Dr. Hunt co-created.

At the 2016 Valentine’s Day presentation of the Safe Conversations workshop in Dallas, over 2,000 participants attended the on-site event, and many more people attended virtually via live-streaming across the city of Dallas and around the country and world.

Hendrix and Hunt are partners in work and in life, and their workshop blends sound professional information with examples from their own lives and relationship. Together, they continue to co-create Imago Relationship Theory and Therapy and make it available in workshops, training programs, lectures, seminars and books. Over 2400 Imago therapists practice in 37 countries. Their professional partnership has produced 10 books including three New York Times best sellers (Getting the Love You Want, Keeping the Love You Find, and Giving the Love that Heals). Their latest book is Making Marriage Simple (2013). They are working on a new professional text on Imago theory and therapy.

Dr. Hendrix has over 40 years experience as an educator, couple therapist, clinical trainer, and lecturer whose work has been on Oprah 17 times. In addition to Dr. Hunt’s partnership with her husband in the co-creation of Imago, she is sole author of Faith and Feminism and creator of Women Moving Millions. For her work with philanthropic entrepreneurism for women and girls and leadership in the global women’s movement, she was installed in the Women’s Hall of Fame. Helen and Harville have been married for over 30 years, have six children, and six grandchildren and reside in Dallas, Texas and New York City.

All members of the general public are welcome to attend this interactive couples workshop. Participants are invited to attend the event with their relationship partners, but participants who attend alone are welcome and will have opportunities to practice the workshop exercises with other participants.

The event will be held on Saturday, February 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the UNCG campus. This event is free to Guilford County residents, but space is limited.

The Guilford Healthy Relationships Initiative within the UNCG Department of Counseling and Educational Development is the lead sponsor for this event.
