“Love has an immense ability to help heal the devastating wounds that life sometimes deals us. Love also enhances our sense of connection to the larger world. Loving responsiveness is the foundation of a truly compassionate, civilized society.” ― Sue Johnson, Hold Me Tight: Your Guide to the Most Successful Approach to Building Loving Relationships
Upcoming Hold Me Tight Workshops
A Relationship Education Group for Couples
The Hold Me Tight® Workshop is a couples workshop designed around seven conversations based on the Hold Me Tight book by Dr. Sue Johnson, all of which have been shown to be essential to successful relationships. Couples learn how to understand and improve their relationship by presentations by the workshop leaders, private exercises and conversations with their partner and by watching video demonstrations of other couples. Attending a Hold Me Tight Workshop in Houston can be transformative for all couples.
This book offers a revolutionary new way to see and shape love relationships. The stories, new ideas and exercises offered in Hold Me Tight are based on the new science of love and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), an effective new model developed by Dr. Johnson.
EFT is a short-term, structured approach to marital and couples therapy. Empirical research has supported the effectiveness of EFT, showing that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and about 90% show significant improvements (the best results of any couple therapy) and evidence shows that these positive effects last over time. Currently EFT is being used with diverse couples from various cultures around the world in private practice, university training centers and hospital clinics.
