Transformation Through Connection

Around the Beltway Programs

Certified Imago Therapists in various locations in the Washington Metropolitan area and Baltimore offer these free programs. They provide an opportunity for therapists to further explore topics in Imago Therapy, as well as look at the integration of Imago Therapy with other theories. Additionally, therapists experience community support in attending these meetings.

MAIT Book Groups (Washington, D.C. and Baltimore)

In suburban Maryland and Virginia, book discussion groups are hosted by MAIT Certified Imago Therapists. These groups discuss books related to the theory of relationships and couples therapy. Exploring the integration of these ideas into Imago Relationship Therapy enriches the discussion. These groups are also free and enhance community among members.

Community Education Days

MAIT offers ½ day events which are both educational and social in nature. Centered on the theory and practice in Imago, these programs deepen knowledge, provide a way to meet or reconnect with colleagues, do soft marketing and are free. Attendees walk away with a "true feeling of community."

Professional Training Days

Three to four times per year MAIT sponsors training events with national and internationally known Imago Relationship Therapy presenters and trainers, including Maya Kollman, Wendy Patterson, Hedy Schleifer, and Tammy Nelson to name a few. These programs, lasting one to two days, offer MAIT members top quality seminars with CEUs.

    Working with couples who have experienced the betrayal of infidelity can be the most challenging form of therapy. 

    How do we intervene after an affair if a couple wants to stay together but is struggling with trust, forgiveness, and an unclear vision of the future of their relationship?We will discuss the three phases of erotic recovery and review how to create a new monogamy agreement that focuses on authentic sexual intervention and dialogue, and not just abstinence or sensory practices.  This workshop will train clinicians in accurate and effective treatment for affair recovery. Dr Nelson will guide participants through a clearly identified process with three phases of erotic recovery that will help to create a new vision for couples who choose to stay together after infidelity. 

    Dr Tammy Nelson is a sex and relationship expert, an international speaker, and author of several books including, “Getting the Sex You Want; Shed Your Inhibitions and Reach New Heights of Passion Together”  and “The New Monogamy; Redefining Your Relationship After Infidelity.” She is a Board Certified Sexologist, an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, and a Certified Imago Relationship therapist.  She has been a featured expert in Glamour Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, MSNBC, Healthy Life Magazine, Shape, Men’s Health, Men’s Health UK, Woman’s Day, Women’s Health, Twist Magazine, New York Times, Washington Post and a source in Time Magazine.
