COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Hold Me Tight® weekend will give you a roadmap for digging beneath the surface of your usual fights or distance to see the pattern and change the underlying music of your emotional dance, to help bring you closer together. We’ll walk you through the steps and provide guidance for how to talk with each other. Are you afraid of what may happen if you talk? Your workshop leaders, experienced couple therapists, will check in during each conversation to see whether you would like a little help. We’ll be there to support and assist you if you get stuck, and we’ll cheer you on as you experience breakthroughs. 

THE CURRICULUM

The Hold Me Tight® curriculum is based on a well-researched model of couple therapy (Emotionally Focused Therapy, EFT) that gets to the core of what makes relationships difficult for couples. Our emotions—great gifts for helping us get through the messiness of life—need careful attention. 

Each of the seven conversations will include four components: 

  • Teaching: Presenters will provide information about how each conversation particularly relates to increased intimacy. 
  • Showing: Video clips of Dr. Sue Johnson working with three different couples will illustrate the relevance of the conversation and the successful elements of the conversation. 
  • Practicing: Each couple will have time alone to have the conversation and support from the presenters if needed. 
  • Processing: We will take time to review how it went, and answer questions. Participants enjoy the opportunity to share and learn from one another.

THE SEVEN CONVERSATIONS

  1. Identifying your reactive patterns 
  2. Finding your ‘raw spots’ 
  3. Reviewing your reactive moments from a more compassionate perspective 
  4. Sharing your softer, more vulnerable feelings and needs that are lost when you are in a reactive pattern 
  5. Repairing emotional injuries from past relationship ‘ruptures’ 
  6. Bonding through touch and sex 
  7. Keeping your love alive

Being able to understand this model, seeing it be implemented by other couples, and practicing it with support, has been highly successful in providing a mechanism to continue to practice with your partner throughout life. It will not ‘cure’ all of your problems, but it will give you a way to address them, for a lifetime of love.
