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, Nurses, 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.
