Hold Me Tight Workshop for Couples
Take time to renew your relationship and reconnect with the love that brought you together.
Your relationship can be a source of great comfort and joy—and also a cause of stress and pain. Many of us are doing the best that we can to be close to each other, even in the midst of conflict and disconnection. Unfortunately, the habitual strategies that we use may cause more distance, conflict, and distress.
This weekend, you and your partner will learn and practice new ways to strengthen the positive, life-affirming aspects of being in relationship with each other. Led by Michelle Gannon, PhD, and Sam Jinich, PhD, licensed psychologists for more than 20 years and sought-after experts in Emotionally Focused Therapy, you learn to:
- Improve your communication
- Affirm strengths in your relationship
- Address negative interaction patterns and recognize underlying reasons for your conflicts
- Understand more clearly each other’s emotions and enhance your emotional and physical closeness.
Michelle and Sam—through a variety of tools, including presentations, private exercises, prompts for conversations with your partner, and video demonstrations—will help you rediscover the pleasure of being a couple and enjoy a more satisfying relationship.
Take time for a weekend together that will support you as a couple for many years to come.
Gain new perspective on how to understand your partner and strengthen your relationship together.
Take home supportive tools for connecting and reconnecting with your partner again and again throughout your relationship.
Understand your own emotions, learn compassionate ways to explore and express your feelings, and increase your understanding of yourself and others.
