Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Heralded by the New York Times and Time as the couples 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 touch points 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.

   Brilliant Insight
Dr. Johnson has a very clear view of relationships and how they break down. She is able to understand what is being sought in conflict by understanding the deep motivators of conflict. This is a must-read for any couple. We act out in order to achieve something that is lacking, and frequently, therapy focuses on communication techniques but neglects to address the core desire that is driving detrimental behavior The book can change that. It's a quick read, and it's concise. Highly recommended.

   This book is a great look at why people need other people
Sue Johnson is my hero. The ways in which we can get our needs met is examined in the book. I'm a single person, but I still need people. I now know why. Great book!

   Top Tier Relationship Book
A very good book. I liked her Love Sense a bit more. One of the best relationship books is available.

   Cannot recommend this book enough
I made it through the first part and feel transformed. After a break up, I bought this because I felt secure in the relationship. I realized through reading this book that he was not me. This makes attachment theory feel realistic. The conversations have helped me evaluate myself, not just my romantic relationships.

   Informative & Transformative
The info in the book is easy to understand and improves my marriage immediately. My husband has been very receptive to sharing what I've said and how we can improve our communication.

   Awesome
A person who does not know how to dig deeper or connect emotionally is for me. I was excited to learn a new language. I can finally speak her love language. Pull her close to me and say, "We will figure this out together." I am here for you. This has changed my life in an emotional way.

   Every couple must read!
Every couple should read this. Even if you think you have a good enough relationship, it will change how you react to your spouse's emotions.

   Our marriage counselor recommended this book to us
This book was recommended to us by our marriage counselor, and it has been great to read it with him. It has made us understand each other better, and I think it has improved our parenting. We have already recommended it to several of our friends, and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

   Excellent guide book to why you keep choosing losers
The guide book is great to explain why you pick winners. I have become more aware of unconscious patterns in me and how to do it differently after a therapist recommended it.

   Reading this book literally saved our 26-year marriage.
Our marriage was saved by this book. The typical tools a counselor could give us were I statements, forgiveness, etc. It wasn't helping. The book taught us to focus on the emotions we were expressing in a way that we gave each other love instead of pouring salt on our wounds. We are in a renaissance because of our history and experience, and we are very happy and treating each other with love, just like when we were newlyweds. Very recommended.
