Imago related events listing

Events can be listed on the website, regardless of whether or not the presenters are members, but all advertisements must be authorised and be considered ‘Imago-related’*

If you are organising an Imago-related* event, such as a presentation on Imago or an Imago workshop or training, which would be of interest to the Australian public, you can publicise it on the AIRTA workshops page and also on the public and closed Facebook pages.

*‘Imago-related’ means:

1. GTLYW workshops presented by certified workshop presenters, in Australia or a neighbouring country (e.g. New Zealand, Bali, Singapore)

2. lectures and workshops based on Imago theory and practice, presented in Australia by certified Imago

3. lectures and workshops about relationships, presented by prominent international therapists and researchers, but not specifically using Imago theory or therapy - no, the events are not directly Imago-related.

GTLYW which are not readily accessible to the Australian public will not be listed. i.e. those in the US or UK. Please contact the Secretary for more information via the contact page.
