Hold Me Tight:

Conversations for Connection  


Acclaim for 

Hold Me Tight:


"A truly revolutionary, breakthrough book... the most important, valuable book for couples published in the 21st Century."

Barry McCarthy, Ph.D.,

author of 63 books including Discover Your Couples' Sexual Style.



"There's something appealing about this book's honest, no-holds-barred approach.  By creating complete emotional safety and by willing to be fearless about it, it seems to me, not only can real love be kept alive, it can flourish."

Boston Globe


The Hold Me Tight: Conversations for Connection Workshop is a structured program for couples and individuals who prefer an educational approach to improving their relationships. The program is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and utilizes the book Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love by Dr. Sue Johnson. Presented in group format, the program provides 16 hours of study that may be scheduled in a variety of ways - for example, in 2-hour sessions over 8 weeks, in two weekends or in one long weekend.  


The first session focuses on the theory and science of relationship.  The remaining sessions focus on helping couples and individuals shape and use the seven conversations laid out in the book. Participants are encouraged to obtain the book before the workshop begins.
