Based on the highly researched method of couples therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy by Dr. Sue Johnson, and her successful book, Hold Me Tight®: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, the Hold Me Tight® Workshop is a 2-day workshop that helps couples take troubling patterns of conflict and transform them into emotionally accessible, responsive and engaging interactions. The workshop is based on attachment science, which has been shown to apply to all couples, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, culture or race. We are pleased and excited to be offering this Hold Me Tight® workshop for LGBT couples to provide more safety and confidentiality as you explore your relationship. We support every couple who desires to deepen their loving connection., especially since love, emotional safety and emotional connection are the antidote to pain. This workshop is appropriate for couples of all stages of happiness or distress. We offer a non-judgmental, emotionally safe space for you and your partner to explore your relationship and the struggles that keep the two of you from either having a stronger relationship or having the relationship of your dreams. During the presentation, we use video clips to aid in the understanding of the lessons we intend to teach . We are currently seeking out video clips more relatable to LGBT couples. Even so, some video clips may include heterosexual white married couples. In addition, the presenter and some helpers may also be heterosexuals. Because we are all living with universal needs, desires and longings, all couples can learn and grow together. If you have any questions about this, please reach out to Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
