    Hold Me Tight® Couple Connecting Weekends

    Welcome to the Hold Me Tight® Weekend Workshop, a transformative experience inspired by the profound insights of Dr. Sue Johnson, renowned author of “Hold Me Tight®: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.”

    Facilitated by Lyissa O’Connor, LMHC,QS and Sheri Vernon, MA, LMHC, seasoned psychotherapists and experts in Attachment-Based Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFCT), this workshop is crafted to deepen the emotional connection between partners. 
    Hold Me Tight® Couple Connecting Weekends

    Based on the concepts of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) developed by Sue Johnson, Ph.D., the popular HOLD ME TIGHT® program helps couples strengthen their relationship, their connection and their love.

     EFCT views the central problem in a distressed relationship as the loss of secure emotional connection and the pattern of negative interactions that both reflects and perpetuates this loss. Compelling emotional signals that are meant to pull a partner closer or reduce conflict, become distorted and shaded with criticism, anger or apparent indifference. Negative spirals of interaction then erode trust and continually exacerbate each partner’s natural vulnerabilities and sense of isolation. 

    EFCT helps partners to take control of this negative dance and to clarify their emotional signals  about attachment needs and fears in a way that encourages their partner to respond with love and compassion.
