Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Dr. Johnson teaches--using Emotionally Focused Therapy--that the way to save and enrich a relationship is to reestablish safe emotional connections and preserve the attachment bond to ensure a lifetime of love.

In clear language, Dr. Sue Johnson describes Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and gives hope to couples who want to improve their relationship. Hold Me Tight is a must read for psychotherapists who provide couple counseling. I certainly benefited from reading it.

Whether you are having relationship problems or simply seeking ways to maintain your healthy relationship, this book is a must read for you, your spouse and your family therapist. Blowing the concept of codependency out of the water, this book provides frank discussion of couples and the emotions that bind...or separate.
