When relaxed, Joe could more easily listen and mirror back what he heard Sara saying about feeling loneliness and pain when he disengaged from her even as she spoke to him.
They reviewed what they did alone: Joe sat silently reading for hours and Sara spoke on the phone with friends. They discussed their dream relationship e. They detailed instances of such feelings and prepared plans to practise benignly expressing them in dialogue homework.

Joe felt frustrated that Sara ignored him while preparing for Sabbath, reinforcing memories of feeling 'invisible' as a child in his parents' home. He asked that for the next two Fridays Sara would find the time to serve him at 12 noon a salad including Bulgarian cheese, black olives, and green onions. After session 13 they went on their first cruise but returned disappointed, each having felt neglected and ignored by the other.
Nevertheless, they could now dialogue: Joe initiated their going to plays and expressed interest in what Sara enjoyed. She learned to express herself freely without upsetting him.
They rediscovered that they liked one another. Therapy over 9 months involved thirty 1- to 2-hour sessions. At 3- and 6-month follow-up they were pleased at the transformation of their relationship.

While other books have been written on application of IRT to other contexts and summary chapters have appeared in other books, this is the first book-length primer to describe the general practice of IRT with couples. Rick Brown is eminently qualified to write this book. He has been a Certified Imago Therapist r for nearly a decade, teaching the theory and practice to therapists nationally and internationally, and he has been an able Executive Director of the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy.
I was delighted to learn that he was invited by the publisher to expand his public lectures into a book.
Imago Relationship Therapy
Therapists who read it will get a general overview of the metatheory, the clinical theory, and the clinical practice of Imago Relationship Therapy. It does offer therapists who wish to become familiar with IRT an accurate and clear guide to its theory and practice and, in addition, it is an excellent review for Imago therapists. He has over twenty years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families, and is a clinical instructor in Imago Relationship Therapy. He has demonstrated Imago Relationship Therapy on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and speaks frequently at professional workshops and conferences nationwide.
