Based on the acclaimed and successful book Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love by Sue Johnson, Hold Me Tight® Workshops are 2-day couple workshops that help couples make sense of interactions, emotions, and restoring secure connections in romantic relationships.

Over the course of two days, couples move through the 7 conversations of Hold me Tight®:


1) Recognizing Demon Dialogues - Identifying the negative patterns that take over relationships and learn to hear each other in non-blaming, non-defensive ways.
2) Finding the Raw Spots - Looking under each partner's automatic reactions during conflicts to identify the sore feelings underneath.
3) Revisiting a Rocky Moment - Finding successful de-escalation of a demon dialogue and learning to repair rifts and build emotional safety.
4) Hold Me Tight - Each partner moving into being more emotionally accessible, responsive, and engaged with each other.
5) Forgiving Injuries - Learning how to heal from injuries as demonstrations of renewal and connection.  Earned forgiveness empowers couples to renew and strengthen their bond.
6) Bonding Through Sex and Touch - Learning how emotional connection creates better sex, and better physical & sexual intimacy creates deeper emotional bonding.
7) Keeping Your Love Alive - Making plans to intentionally maintain and protect connection.

Couples at our Hold Me Tight® workshop learn and experience new ways to:
Be more Accessible, Responsive, and Engaged (A.R.E.) with each other:

      Highlight and honor strength in their relationship

      Recognize and respond to emotions

      Understand conflicts in non-blaming, non-defensive ways
