April 6-10, 2009 - Join us on the API Forum during the week of April 6 - 10 and participate in the first of a new, FREE three-chat series on the topic of Marriage, Partners and Parenting.
The Imago API Forum schedule below lists the dates that Imago (Getting the Love You Want) practitioners will be available to chat with us about maintaining and repairing warm and rewarding relationships between parents.
As busy parents striving to stay attuned with our children, we tend to neglect connections with our primary adult attachment figures -- typically our partners and spouses. The results can cause a temporary or prolonged reduction of critical support. Symptoms might include strained communications; short tempers; frayed relations; diminished mutual interest and more.
In this special API Forum you can post your questions any time during the week and receive back a reply to your question. You can also read and learn more about the value of tending to your relationships and how Imago can help.
We want to offer help and support and hope you'll tell your friends and plan to join us on the API Forum during the week of April 6 -10 for the first of these very special forum chats.
