                   A workshop led by Dr. Sam Jinich and Dr. Michelle Gannon

At this weekend workshop, you are going to learn about a well researched and empirically validated theory that helps us to understand why we have conflict in relationships and how to bring about repair and deepen emotional connection. Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy recognizes that couples are doing the best that they can to be emotionally attached to each other even in the midst of conflict. Unfortunately, the strategies that we use during conflict cause more distance and we cannot discern what our partners are feeling or wanting. The Hold Me Tight Workshop will guide you and your partner through seven private conversations that capture the defining moments in a love relationship. Through these conversations we will show you how to shape these defining moments to create a secure and lasting bond. At the workshop, we will share the highlights of Attachment Theory and how it can help you and your partner to understand your relationship better. We will show you video samples of real couples engaging in  each of these conversations, and then you will have the opportunity to try it on your own with the assistance and support of your workshop leaders , Dr. Sam Jinich and Dr. Michelle Gannon, and other trained therapist helpers.

The Hold Me Tight book and the Hold Me Tight Workshop offer a revolutionary new way to see and shape love relationships. The stories, new ideas and exercises offered in Hold Me Tight are based on the new science of love and the wisdom of Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT).

EFT is a short-term, structured approach to marital and couples therapy. Empirical and experiential research has supported the effectiveness of EFT showing that 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and about 90% show significant improvements (the best results of any couple therapy) and evidence shows that these positive effects last over time. Presently EFT is being used with diverse couples from various cultures around the world in private practice, university training centers and hospital clinics.

The outstanding success rate of this approach has been heralded in scientific journals, the New York Times and Time magazine.

Por primera vez, ponemos al alcance del gran publico una versión abreviada y accesible de la Terapia Centrada en las Emociones, definida por The New York Times como ""la terapia de pareja con mayor porcentaje de éxitos"". Lejos de ser autosuficientes, dice la autora, los adultos también forjan relaciones de apego: necesitan ser amados tanto como un niño necesita el cariño y la protección de la madre. A partir de este enfoque, su propuesta es muy sencilla: olvidémonos de aprender técnicas de negociación, de analizar la infancia o de experimentar nuevas posturas en la cama y admitamos que dependemos emocionalmente de nuestra pareja. Y puesto que las relaciones se van definiendo a partir de momentos emocionales claves, Sue Jonson propone siete conversaciones centradas en esos instantes, capaces de crear y fortalecer la vinculación afectiva. Esta es una propuesta revolucionaria que nos ayudara a disfrutar de una relación amorosa satisfactoria y duradera.
