What to Expect during the Program: 
Throughout the two days, the format will involve presentations made by Dr. Diana Weiss-Wisdom on attachment theory and the neuroscience of love.  There will be a slide presentation intermingled with video demonstrations, short and longer that help drive home the point that the program is making.  

Couples will have the opportunity to do seven structured exercises throughout the Hold Me Tight® Workshop. Therapists will be available to assist you with the exercises if needed.

The exercises (conversations with your partner) all build on one another; essentially, they are the building blocks of the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy Love Map, that has been shown through research to help reduce marital distress and increase satisfaction in many couples over the long term.  

It's not just a dry program; some of the videos are fun as they demonstrate what we are teaching. We have some group discussion but no one is "called on" and group participation is completely voluntary.

Workbook Materials
Every attendee will receive their own workbook that has the exercise conversations in it.  

This is a positive, research-based program for all couples that want to strengthen and deepen their relationship.

Imagine being able to understand each other better and build an even more loving relationship that just gets stronger over a lifetime.

In our workshop, you will learn what is at the root of most conflicts between you and your partner, and how to change those moments through a proven method that all couples can do.

Our Hold Me Tight® Workshop for Couples is based on Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and the international best-selling book "Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love" by Dr. Sue Johnson.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has been shown through research to be the most effective approach to helping couples:

  • Change the negative cycle of repetitive arguments and distancing that can cause alienation, frustration, and pain;
  • Understand emotions and needs in romantic relationships and how to tend to each other in a way that creates positive, bonding moments;
  • Begin to repair old relationship injuries and how to build more trust moving forward;
  • Learn and practice a new way of communicating with each other that promotes a closer connection, more effective problem solving skills, and can help you have more fun and freedom together in your life.​
