What makes these workshops so special?
The award-winning Hold Me Tight® workshop gives you a transformational new way to see and tend close, loving relationships based on the leading edge science of love, Dr. Sue Johnson’s best-selling book Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love , and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT).
EFT is a structured approach to marriage and couple therapy that meets the very highest levels of scientific standards set by organizations such as the American Psychological Association. In research studies, it’s effectiveness is higher than that shown by any other form of couple therapy, with 90% of couples showing significant improvement. Research evidence also shows these positive effects last over time.
This approach has met with outstanding success and has received considerable acclaim around the world. It has been heralded in scientific journals, The New York Times, and Time magazine.
The Hold Me Tight workshop presents the material of EFT in a simplified, guided, and educational format with the opportunity to learn from video examples of other couples and from detailed, hands-on exercises you perform with your partner.
Lori Marchak, MS PhD, LCPC is a Certified EFT therapist based in Bozeman, Montana with experience helping hundreds of people improve their relationships. She is a professional speaker with a warm and compelling presence. She is well-versed in both the science of love and the art of relationship healing.
Is this workshop for you?
This workshop is designed for all couples in committed relationships. It’s best to address patterns that create distance before they have time to grow, yet this workshop is just as appropriate and surprisingly powerful for couples who have felt distance between them for a long time.
If your relationship is not in any real distress, or if it is in mild to moderate distress, this workshop is for you. If your workshop is in serious distress, including if it is threatened by a current addiction, abuse, or affair, then this workshop is not for you, and we recommend couple therapy instead. We also recommend couple therapy rather than this workshop if one or both partners is suffering with serious, unresolved trauma. Please contact us if you are not sure whether this workshop is appropriate for you.
