'Hold Me Tight' couples workshop

February 14, 2014

The Center for Family and Couple Therapy offers services to all members of our Larimer County community as well as to students, faculty, and staff here on campus. Starting Feb. 25, we'll offer the 4-week workshop, 'Hold Me Tight.'

February 25-March 25
6-7:30 p.m.
Behavioral Sciences Building
Room 458

Satisfying relationships

The Colorado State University Center for Family and Couple Therapy will hold four, weekly Tuesday evening sessions as part of a workshop titled, "Hold Me Tight."

In this workshop, we'll help you understand your interactions as a couple, explore your cycles of distress and connection, and devise strategies for a mutually satisfying relationship. 

The Hold Me Tight workshop uses the concept of emotionally focused therapy, which has a 70 to 75 percent success rate.

Educational workshop

This educational group is based on the book Hold Me Tight by Susan Johnson, Ph.D., and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a scientifically validated therapy for couples. However, this is an educational workshop rather than a therapy group.

The workshop will be facilitated by Ashley Harvey, Ph.D., LMFT, and Paul McClure, MS, LMFT.

Ashley is a CSU faculty member who has been practicing EFT for past 10 years, and Paul is a therapist in private practice who uses EFT and attachment-based approaches with couples.
