Harville Hendrix on the Healing Relationship
by Harville Hendrix
The founder of Imago Therapy, and one of the leading experts in couples therapy sits down with Randall C. Wyatt to discuss a bold turn in the way we think about psychotherapy and relationships.
“Relationship is the context in which you get healed… and we think couplehood is the most powerful source of healing there is.” – Harville Hendrix, PhD

Moving away from individual psychology, Harville Hendrix asserts that because we are wounded in relationships, it is ultimately through relationships that we must heal and grow. Relationships often begin full of hope of healing these wounds, but everyday we see couples in our offices, trapped in painful conflicts, unwittingly re-injuring each other.

Hendrix introduces a dialogue process that engages couples in mutual empathy and genuine curiosity, discusses “the defense against love” and other relational challenges, tells us how his therapy model saved his own marriage, and explains the biggest mistake couples therapists make.
