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.

This is a good book, but the recording is bizarre. I think it was created much in the same way Siri was created. Thus it sounds like a soulless robot droning on for hours without nuance, change in pace, tone, or feeling. I couldn’t imagine listening to this for 9 hours!
Must read for couples
I have been following Sue Johnson's work for a while in professional journals and was thrilled when she wrote a book. I wish I could assign it to every couple I know.
