Hold Me Tight Workshops for Couples

Conversations for a Lifetime of Love:
A Workshop for Couples

This workshop, based on Dr. Sue Johnson’s ground-breaking book, Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, introduces a well-researched and an effective approach that helps couples move from frustration and loneliness toward the creation of a secure, loving bond. In this one day workshop, you will learn how to use information from the new science of love to explore negative patterns and conflicts that erode away at love, safety and security. You will learn important skills as you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and your partner, which will help you heal past hurts and change patterns that create distance. This one day workshop will help your improve communication and strengthen your connection with one another. In a safe, supportive environment, you will learn about where things go awry and how to address these bumps, see video examples of how other couples improved their relationships, and have the opportunity to practice in private with your partner. 

You will learn how to:

  • Address stuck patterns and negative cycles
  • Make sense of your own emotions
  • Learn more about your partner’s inner world
  • Develop deeper understanding and closeness
