- Are you tired of arguing? Do you want to start enjoying your relationship again?
- Would you like to stop feeling lonely and start feeling safe, secure and loved?
- Are you looking for a research based, fun, and interesting pre-marital education program?
Join us for this positive, research-based program for all couples that want to strengthen and deepen their relationship. Pre-marital couples that want to prepare and learn how to make love last for a lifetime will benefit from this program. You will take home tools that you can keep using in your relationship.
Our workshop is based on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and the best-selling book, “Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love” by Dr. Sue Johnson. EFT focuses on creating and strengthening the emotional bond between partners by identifying and transforming the key moments that foster an adult loving relationship. Research shows that 7 out of 10 couples who go through EFT move from relationship distress to relationship satisfaction.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy's effectiveness has been demonstrated in over 25 years of clinical research. EFT has an outstanding track record for helping save marriages and enrich relationships and has been written up in many of the most prominent academic and scientific journals, magazines, and newspapers. Dr. Sue Johnson, the primary developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy has written the book, "Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love" and the Hold Me Tight®Workshop (based on the book) to make this information more available to the public. We recommend that you read the book or at least the first 100 pages of the book prior to the workshop (but this is not mandatory). Watch this video of Dr. Sue Johnson talking about the theoretical and scientific foundation behind Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, the book, Hold Me Tight (and this Hold Me Tight Couples Workshop). _Click here for video
Throughout the workshop weekend, there will be a team of EFT trained therapists to assist participating couples.
Over the weekend you will:
- Discover the key moments that shape romantic, loving relationships;
- Learn how to create these moments;
- Identify strengths in your relationship;
- Discover what is at the root of most conflicts;
- Learn to be more accessible, responsive and emotionally engaged with each other;
- Experience engaging, fun, positive, and interactive presentations!
The format and schedule include: Educational talks, video presentations, and couple's exercises (in private, not in front of the group), with a catered lunch brought in each day (dietary preferences of attendees are always taken into consideration).
