If you and your partner want to create and maintain a loving, secure, committed relationship, you need more than lessons in how to improve your negotiation skills, fight better, change behaviors, or experiment with new activities. More important is learning how to become emotionally responsive to each other. With half of all American marriages ending in divorce, knowing how to truly strengthen your relationship is critical. The Portland Hold Me Tight program teaches you how to understand and protect the emotional bond in your relationship. Contemporary research has shown that this is the key to maintaining a lively, stable relationship.
What is Hold Me Tight?
Hold Me Tight is a relationship enrichment and education program that helps couples strengthen their emotional connection. It teaches partners to become more empathic, trusting, and open with each other and to more easily handle day-to-day stress and problems. Hold Me Tight was developed by Susan Johnson, an internationally recognized expert in couple therapy. She based it on principles from Emotionally Focused Therapy with Couples, a research based, powerful way of helping couples renew their emotional bond.
