Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop

Coming in 2020

Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop

The Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop, developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, award winning founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and author of the book Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, is an investment in building and strengthening your relationship. 

Seven Conversations

Hold Me Tight Couples Workshop presents an opportunity for couples to learn about and engage in seven conversations that capture the defining moments in a love relationship.

Each participant will engage in these seven conversations with their partner:

  1. Recognizing Demon Dialogues—couples identify negative and destructive remarks in order to get to the root of the problem and figure out what each other is really trying to say.

  2. Finding the Raw Spots—each partner learns to look beyond immediate, impulsive reactions to figure out what raw spots are being hit.

  3. Revisiting a Rocky Moment—a platform for de-escalating conflict and repairing rifts in a relationship and building emotional safety.

  4. Hold Me Tight—moves partners into being more accessible, emotionally responsive, and deeply engaged with each other.

  5. Forgiving Injuries—learning how to find and offer forgiveness empowers couples to strengthen their bond.

  6. Bonding Through Sex and Touch—couples find how emotional connection creates great sex, and good sex creates deeper emotional connection.

  7. Keeping Your Love Alive—love is a continual process of losing and finding emotional connection; it asks couples to be deliberate and mindful about maintaining connection.

Goals of the workshop

Participants will:

  • Better understand the concepts of attachment and adult romantic love.

  • Recognize the negative patterns that often create pain and distance in their relationship.

  • Better understand emotional responses and needs within their relationship context.

  • Be able to shape positive moments of reaching and responding that create a more secure bond.
