Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love by Sue Johnson | Conversation Starters
Her parents deeply loved each other but could not overcome their differences and eventually got divorced. Then she studied psychology and counseling and eventually made the realization that love and marriage are more about emotional bonding rather than rational bargains. Emotional Focused Therapy is recognized by the American Psychological Association "as an empirically proven form of couple therapy." Dr. Sue Johnson says her book is written for all couples including the young, old, engaged, married, cohabiting, distressed, happy, gay, straight, and all partners who are interested in maintaining happy and loving relationships. It is for couples from all cultures because everyone has the "same basic need for connection."
Hold Me Tight is hailed by the New York Times and Time magazine as a highly effective couples therapy method, citing its high success rate. It is authored by Johnson who is the internationally recognized leader in the science of relationships.
