Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? We all want a lifetime of love, support, and companionship. But sometimes we need a little help.

Enter Dr. Sue Johnson, developer of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and “the best couple therapist in the world,” according to bestselling relationship expert Dr. John Gottman. In Hold Me Tight, Dr. Johnson shares her groundbreaking and remarkably successful program for creating stronger, more secure relationships.

The message of Hold Me Tight is simple: Forget about learning how to argue better, analyzing your early childhood, making grand romantic gestures, or experimenting with new sexual positions. Instead, get to the emotional underpinnings of your relationship by recognizing that you are emotionally attached to and dependent on your partner in much the same way that a child is on a parent for nurturing, soothing, and protection. Dr. Johnson teaches that the way to enhance or save a relationship is to be open, attuned, and responsive to each other and to reestablish emotional connection. With this in mind, she focuses on key moments in a relationship—from Recognizing the Demon Dialogues to Forgiving Injuries—and uses them as touch points for seven healing conversations. These conversations give you insight into the defining moments in your relationship and guide you in reshaping these moments to create a secure and lasting bond.

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
