9780316113007: Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love

Heralded by the New York Times and Time magazine as the couple therapy with the highest rate of success, Emotionally Focused Therapy works because it views the love relationship as an attachment bond. This idea, once controversial, is now supported by science, and has become widely popular among therapists around the world.

In Hold me Tight, Dr. Sue Johnson presents Emotionally Focused Therapy to the general public for the first time. Johnson teaches that the way to save and enrich a relationship is to reestablish safe emotional connection and preserve the attachment bond. With this in mind, she focuses on key moments in a relationship-from Recognizing the Demon Dialogue to Revisiting a Rocky Moment-and uses them as touchpoints for seven healing conversations. Through case studies from her practice, illuminating advice, and practical exercises, couples will learn how to nurture their relationships and ensure a lifetime of love.

From AudioFile:

Few audio lessons capture the emotional challenges of love relationships as well as this one by an articulate marriage therapist. Focusing on troubled relationships, it shows how couples can stop fighting, deal with vulnerabilities, resolve and heal old injuries, build secure connections, and develop relationship strengths. These remedies are anchored to a sensitive explanation of the underlying attachment issues that provide both joy and frustration in romantic relationships. Sandra Burr is an outstanding choice to read this excellent guide. Her vocal security and tasteful dramatic skills don't overshadow the main ideas in each section, even when she's handling the frequent dialogue. She sounds appealing in a maternal sort of way, and her seriousness constantly reminds us that essential information is unfolding. T.W. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
