-Record a DVD of a clinical session involving the Imago Dialogue and self-evaluate it using the current scoring sheet. Be sure that this tape achieves a pass mark of 70%.
-Ask your Clinical Instructor, or whoever is providing your 6 months of supervision consultation to review this DVD as part of their consultation service to you, and to provide a note indicating that they agree the DVD is at a 70% or above level.
-Contact the Imago Training Coordinator at Training@ImagoRelationships.org, who will assign an Evaluator.
-Send the DVD, your evaluation and the note from your trainer or consultant to the Evaluator designated by the Training Coordinator, together with the fee of $195. (Prices may vary outside USA, the Training Coordinator will provide our current policy)
-The Assessor will either provide clear, detailed written feedback to you, or may contact you for a telephone consultation of your DVD. This consultation will focus on reviewing and providing feedback of your self-assessment. Provided that the evaluator agrees that you pass at 70% or above, he/she will notify the Professional Training Coordinator to issue a Certificate, as long as all other training requirements have been met.
-If the DVD is not passed, we recommend that you review the feedback from the evaluating CI with your consultant/supervisor. Once integrating the feedback, your Clinical Instructor or consultant will support you to submit a second tape. If desired, you may request a different evaluator for the second tape.
-Please do not be disheartened if your first submitted tape does not pass. We have a culture of learning whereby it is fine to be asked for another DVD. We want you to receive the best training possible from us, and requiring a certain degree of proficiency in the model takes considerable time to achieve.
In the event that the tape is not considered by the Assessor to be a passing tape, the Assessor will contact the trainee’s Clinical Instructor.
The CI will watch the tape. If they agree that it is not a passing tape, the Assessor will let the trainee know, and will proceed to give feedback to them. They will email the CI to let them know when this is done.
If the Clinical Instructor thinks it is a passing tape, then the trainee will have the option to send it to another faculty member. This will be done anonymously. The Central office will send the DVD to another faculty member. That view will be binding.
