Workshop Details

The Hold Me Tight Workshop for Couples is based on practices drawn from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), attachment theory, and Sue Johnson’s best-selling book, Hold Me Tight. The work will be designed around seven conversations that have been shown to be essential to successful relationships. Relationships can be a cause of stress and pain or a source of comfort and joy. Couples will learn how to understand and improve their relationships via presentations, private exercises, conversations with relationship partners, and by watching video demonstrations. By utilizing exercises drawn from EFT, Sam Jinich and Michelle Gannon help couples learn how to deal with their feelings together, reach towards each other, be responsive in more loving and positive ways, and move from isolation and frustration to security, emotional safety, and lasting relationship satisfaction. The Hold Me Tight Workshop welcomes couples of all orientations.

Recommended reading: Johnson, Hold Me Tight; Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love and Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships.
