Thank you for creating a safe environment for me and my wife to share our deepest emotions. Excerpt from "Hold Me Tight" Conversation 3: Revisiting a Rocky Moment Auntie Doris, a very large lady with peroxide hair and whiskers on her chin, was pouring rum over a huge Christmas pudding. She was also arguing with my almost inebriated Uncle Sid. One of them dead-end doozy fights we does. Are we going to fight it out? Both feel bad then. Do we need to do it? Or can we just start over? My Christmas was saved by a compliment and a pat. But now, all these years later, I see their interaction in another less self-centered way. In a moment of conflict and disconnection, Uncle Sid and Aunt Doris were able to recognize a negative pattern, declare a ceasefire and re-establish a warmer connection. It was probably pretty easy for Doris and Sid to cut short their fight and change direction because, on most days, their relationship was a safe haven of loving responsiveness.

By chap Hands down the best relationship book I have ever read.

By chapter four you'll have a good idea of some things you can do and STOP doing, without even having started the "seven conversations. So at least ask yourself this: What have you got to lose? It's not a long book, the science is super interesting, and many of the stories are touching. And don't be fooled by the frouffy title, it's not a frouffy book. But the science she talks about is serious stuff, and the ideas are deep, so I never felt I was being frouffed-over.

Q: Are workshop participants asked to process confidential matters in group?

But many participants do share poignant lessons they experience during the workshop. Sharing is completely up to the participant. Q: Will participants be required to do much writing? But many of our participants take generous notes in provided workshop booklet, or in their own notebooks.

A: Every couple is different. Every couple crisis presents different challenges. If you feel like you are in crisis, we recommend that you call us and describe your situation.

Only with a good assessment of your current challenge will we be able to fully assess the fit of the workshop for you. We may suggest an intensive session before coming to the workshop to better prepare you to gain the maximum benefit the workshop can offer.

A: We strongly believe so. Several same sex couples have progressed through our workshop. Please see our latest video testimonial for the thoughts of one of those couples.

Each began to fit their fights, rifts and everyday hurts into this pattern. It is clear that Kerrie sees Sal through a narrow prism of distrust. She does not really understand the impact her distancing has on him in the here and now and how it pulls him into their cycle.

Okay, so there is this wired-in need for contact and I can be kind of cool, that is my style. But I have been a pretty good wife to you. This is a real issue with us. It comes up all the time. Kerrie is off in some other world before he finishes his first rational sentence.

We need to change level of dialogue here and get a little more emotional engagement. I ask him if he remembers how he feels, waiting for Kerrie to come to bed. He takes a moment and then retorts. Wondering if and when she is going to deign to turn up! You sound angry but there is a bitterness here behind the sarcasm.

What does it feel like to be waiting for her, feeling that she does not care how long you wait or may not come at all? After a long silence, he answers. So I turn it into straight anger. But what does it feel like to be waiting? She furrows her brow in disbelief. She fits me in the cracks in her busy schedule. We used to always be close before going to sleep.

If I try and talk about it, I just get dismissed. Lying in bed by myself, I go into feeling so unimportant.

It feels like I am all by myself here. I remember listening to him talk in the first session about his lonely childhood, mostly spent in expensive boarding schools, while his diplomat parents traveled the world. I remembered him telling me that Kerrie is the only person he has ever felt close to or trusted and that finding her had opened a whole new world for him. As I reflect these thoughts and his own words back to him, I legitimize his pain.

Then I ask how it feels right now to talk about these difficult feelings of being pushed aside.

But you feel hopeless. It is scary for most of us when we are unsure of our connection, when we cannot get the person we love to respond to us. It is scary. She can take her time. And this time when I look at Kerrie, her eyes are wide open.

Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love -Sue Johnson

She has leaned forward towards her husband. I ask her how she is reacting to the things her husband is sharing. You are. You feel alone? I have never ever seen that in you. Her husband is not the man she thought he was. That it mattered to you so much that I come to bed. When we fight it sounds like it is all about how you want more sex.

I just thought you wanted to be in control. And then his anger is too much for me and I run away more. And then we are stuck. I never got that I had that impact on you. That you might be feeling alone in the dark. He protests her distance. She protests his aggressive ways of trying to connect with her. Sal and Kerrie start to see, in a concrete way, how they hook each other into their negative pattern. Doherty, Ph. This fabulous book will be of great benefit…to couples trying to find their way to better communication and deeper, more fulfilling ways of being with each other.

Siegel, M. Sue Johnson has … created a whole new way of helping couples cope with serious relationship issues that has proven time and time again to be highly successful. Sue Johnson has finally written the indispensable book for every couple in love. Every relationship has a chance to succeed as long as each person is understood and heard.

I would recommend the book to anyone who is trying to build deeper relationships in their lives. I learned a lot by reading this book and have continued to refer back to it when feeling stuck in a bad pattern in a relationship. For people who really want to LOVE. Realizing that we are all broken in different places, the author uses other couples dialogue to guide us back together.

This book helps in all interpersonal and group relationships. When we can see ourselves clearly, we can then validate others! Give this as a gift to as many people as possible and the world will be a better place.

This book may change your life. This should be required first reading for every couple in trouble. Maybe even required reading for anyone considering a committed relationship in or out of societally defined marriage.

Johnson has at last put words to the latest research into happy marriages for the average person. I read the first few chapters, bought three more copies one for my spouse , and gave the other two to friends who were in stressful moments with their own spouses.
