Hold Me Tight®:
Weekend Workshop for Couples Who Want to Deepen Their Connection
Facilitated by a husband and wife team
As a couple we don’t teach you, just how to improve your relationship, we demonstrate how to keep it going for the long term. Bernie Slutsky and Fran Zimmerman started presenting workshops for couples in September 2012. There have been over 75 couples that have been through this program. This workshop is about change. It is not enough to get through a difficult time, or a crisis, it is about creating change in your relationship for long lasting connection.
We have finally learned how to make relationships right, thanks to cutting edge science our Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop will help you find your way.
Hold Me Tight® Couples Workshop is designed to provide a safe and supportive environment to help you deepen your understanding of you and your partner, develop the tools needed to heal emotional injuries that may have occurred in the relationship, and help you strengthen your relationship for years to come.
In addition, the workshop teaches couples to become more caring, to have a more trusting bond with each other, and to be more open with their feelings. All of this makes it possible for couples to have easier exchanges when they are in day to day stressful situations. As a couple we model to you what we are teaching. That makes this weekend special.
The program was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson, who created Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) and wrote the book Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.
No matter what stage of your relationship, married or not, you can learn to create a more loving bond with your partner.
In the Hold Me Tight® Couple’s Workshop you will learn to:
Develop tools to address stuck patterns and create the trust and intimacy you’ve longed for
Improve your communication and reduce conflict
Recognize underlying reasons for your conflicts
Heal, forgive, and let go of relationship injuries that block connection, trust, intimacy, and safety
Deepen your intimate connection on the emotional and physical level
You will practice exercises with your partner (privately) to improve relationship skills and view videos of other couples demonstrating how they learned to improve communication and strengthen their relationship.
You are encouraged to read Hold Me Tight before the workshop. This book has been .endorsed by leading researchers and authors in the marriage and relationship field.
Couples of all backgrounds, stages of life, faiths, and sexual orientation are welcome.
