Hold Me Tight

Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

Good book

This is a very good read. Highly recommended

Interesting Cases

As I'm reading this book, I like the cases more and more. They tell me about common issues between couples. However, she somehow simplified some of the issues. I think, in some cases, the main issue is that each side has a completely different point of view and does not agree with the other side. In such cases, one side may act as s/he understands the other sides. But its just acting. This may solve the issue temporarily, but it will come back later on and more seriously. The book is written like it has the answer for all couple's emotional issues. I don't think so. Anyways, I wish I had a chance to read this book before getting married :(
