EFT Workshops


Hold Me Tight® Workshop

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop applies Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a science-based system of therapy, to facilitate positive relational outcomes in adult couples. EFT is a well-researched and effective model of treatment. According to the American Psychological Association, 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and as much as 90% show significant improvement in their relationships when utilizing this approach.

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop will provide

  • An opportunity to understand the ways in which relationships get stuck in the same old argument.

  • An understanding of the experiences or emotions that are triggered below the surface in the moment of disconnection.

  • The opportunity to practice revisiting these hurts in a fresh, safe, new way.

  • The ability to practice communicating your emotional needs to your partner and create new ways of connecting that strengthen your bond.

*This workshop is approved for 13 Continuing Education credits for Psychologists, Counselors, Social Workers, and Marriage & Family Therapists. There is a small, additional fee for CEU credit.

What to Expect
  • Facilitators will introduce and explain relationship science based on material associated with Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy work (we strongly suggest that you read Hold Me Tight® prior to attending the workshop).

  • Couples will be able to work with each other and practice material learned with as much assistance from facilitators as is comfortable.

  • There is no pressure to share with the group, and all practice work will be with your partner.

*Hold Me Tight® workshops are not for couples in extreme distress; this would include current abuse, active addiction, and/or current/ongoing infidelity. Please contact the Mental Health Hotline - 988.
