Developed over 20 years ago and practiced all over the world, Emotionally Focused Therapy has been heralded by Time magazine and the New York Times as one of the only types of therapy to actually work. Couples who practice EFT see a 75% success rate (compared to 30% for other forms of relationship therapy). EFT focuses on the emotional connection of every relationship by de-escalating conflict, creating a safe emotional connection, and strengthening bonds between partners.

Now in paperback, HOLD ME TIGHT introduces readers to EFT and illustrates a program they can use in their own relationships. Part I introduces the view of love as an attachment bond and applies this view to relationship problems. Part II offers seven "conversations" that focus on key moments. Readers can use these to understand their responses and relationships better. Included are exercises to help couples work through the process.

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
