What are the seven conversations about?
Recognizing Demon Dialogues—In this first conversation, couples identify negative communication pattern that they fall into.
Finding the Raw Spots—Here, each partner learns to look beyond immediate, impulsive reactions to figure out what emotional raw spots are being hit.
Revisiting a Rocky Moment—Couples learn to de-escalate and repair conflict in this safe conversation.
Hold Me Tight—Both partners move towards becoming more accessible and responsive to each other in this key conversation.
Forgiving Injuries—This conversation gives you a way to find and offer forgiveness for past hurts so you can re-establish trust and connection.
Bonding Through Sex and Touch—This conversation is about deepening the emotional connection in couples’ sexual connection.
Keeping Your Love Alive—This last conversation helps couples establish ways to maintain connection throughout the ups and downs of life after the workshop.
This workshop is experiential and educational. Based on Sue Johnson’s best selling book, “Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love,” It is open to the public and is not considered therapy.

Don't feel left out if you do not have a partner at this time. Singles are very welcome to come and learn about relationships. This program has been implemented with groups where the participants vary in age, stage of the relationship, sexual orientation, and where some participants have been single and simply wishing to learn more about relationships. Singles may choose to do the exercises in writing by themselves, to complete them with another single person, or complete them in writing and share them with all the other singles in a group. We suggest coming to the workshop with another single friend with whom you can share the experience and the exercises.
