Hold Me Tight: 10/17/08
Hold Me Tight by Dr. Sue Johnson offers seven exercises for couples based on her years of work in EFT (emotionally focused therapy).
EFT works with the same tenets as attachment parenting: emotional security to create stronger relationships and better self esteem for couples.
The seven conversations take up the bulk of the book. While it may be tempting to jump right to the how-to part of the book, I recommend reading the introductory first part. I found the connection between attachment parenting especially enlightening.
The best part of Hold Me Tight is that Dr. Johnson's techniques aren't based on traditional gender stereotypes. It was refreshing to read a book that looks at basic human needs and can be used successfully with any sort of committed relationship.
