WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: The Creating Connection/HMT Couples 2 DAY Workshop based on the Hold Me Tight© program is an educational format that is modeled after the highly successful form of couples therapy known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). This program provides opportunity for you to understand your relationship differently so you can increase your loving engagement, problem solve those tough, nagging issues and strengthen your communication skills through private exercises with your partner.
The GREAT news is that we are now bringing the EFT model to you in our Creating Connection Couples Weekend Workshop that will be Effective, Safe, Supportive, and Validating. In this workshop we do a combination of lecture, PowerPoint presentation, view video clips, couple related exercises and have group discussion to help you learn the concepts and apply them to your own relationship. Each participant is given a notebook of the exercises to do at several points during the workshop after the instructions are explained. This is done in private with your partner. After the exercises are completed, they are debriefed.
EFT was developed by Dr. Sue Johnson and has demonstrated its effectiveness in over 25 years of peer-reviewed research studies. No other form of couples treatment boasts the same caliber of effectiveness. The focus of EFT is to help partners to understand more clearly each other’s deepest emotions. Feelings are often hidden, unexpressed or misunderstood. Our relationships can be a cause of stress and pain or a source of comfort and joy. In EFT, we help couples learn how to deal with their feelings together, reach towards each other, and be responsive in more loving and positive ways.
Most importantly, the weekend will be Positive, Proactive and FUN! The tools you learn will continue to serve your relationship long after this weekend.
