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.
