Hold Me Tight® Workshops:  Relationship Enhancement Groups for the Public

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and is designed around seven conversations based on the Hold Me Tight book, all of which have been shown to be essential to successful relations.  You will learn how to understand and improve your relationship through presentations by the workshop leaders, private exercises and conversations with your partner and by watching video demonstrations of other couples.

The Hold Me Tight ® couples workshop is based on Dr. Sue Johnson’s research and book Hold Me Tight – Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love. This workshop provides an opportunity for you to understand your relationship differently so you can increase your loving engagement, problem solve those tough, nagging issues and strengthen your communication skills through private exercises with your partner. In addition to practice with your partner, you will see video examples of other couples and how they learned to improve their communication and strengthen their relationship so you can learn how to:

  • Address stuck patterns and negative cycles
  • Make sense of your own emotions
  • Learn more about your partner’s inner
  • Overcome loneliness
  • Repair and forgive emotional injuries
  • Deepen your emotional, physical and
    sexual connection
  • Communicate to develop deeper
    understanding and closeness


If you and your partner are stuck in the same old pattern of conflict or disconnection, and would like to improve your communication, sense of understanding and a deepening of connection, then this workshop might be right for you.  If your relationship is experiencing ongoing violence or active, destructive addiction, then seeking help through therapy may be a better choice.


The informative and experiential workshop takes place on  Saturday day (9am – 6pm) and Sunday day (9am – 4pm).  During these hours, there will be presentations by the facilitator, including video clips.  There will be exercises for you and your partner. These exercises will be done between the two of you, though facilitators are on hand to help, should you wish.  It is more private than therapy as you do the exercises on your own, but with more structure, guidance, and available help than doing the process at home.


The price of the workshop includes admission for two people to the 16-hour workshop. In addition, it includes a copy of the book “Hold Me Tight” and two copies of the workbook to accompany the material in the workshop.  


No, this is an educational program.  It is designed to be a streamlined version of the EFT process and is a great way to jumpstart, shorten, and in some cases replace couples therapy.
