Hold Me Tight is a relationship educational program and a book by Dr. Sue Johnson based on the new science of love and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT).  The outstanding success rate of this approach has been heralded in scientific journals, The New York Times, and Time magazine.

Hold Me Tight breaks this approach down into seven transforming conversations that use the defining moments in love relationships to foster secure and lasting bonds:

During the weekend workshop, you will:

  1. Learn about love and attachment

  2. Begin to make sense of your own and your partner’s emotions and needs

  3. Understand how love goes wrong

  4. Identify stuck points in your relationship

  5. Learn how to talk about hurts without getting stuck

  6. Learn how to apologize and forgive

  7. Discover ways to keep love alive in your relationship

Couples who can work through the stuck places in their relationship and create a safe way of interacting with each other:

  1. Are healthier

  2. Are generally more successful and happier at work

  3. Have more frequent and satisfying sex

  4. Are less “needy”

  5. Find more satisfaction in being together

  6. Rely on each other more

  7. Parent more as a team

  8. Find more fulfillment in life

  9. Manage pain, disappointment, and fear better

Who: Couples without serious distress, such as domestic violence, substance abuse, or severe mental health challenges.  Works well as a supplement to ongoing couple therapy.

How: We will work through the seven conversations and you will view video clips of real couples who have worked through each conversation.  As a couple, you will have opportunities to privately do the exercises regarding these conversations.

Cost: $450.00 per couple.  Early bird rate: $395.00.  Lunch and refreshments are provided.

Where: Martin Luther University College, Waterloo, Ontario
