The class is not recommended for those who are actively engaged in addiction, abuse or an affair. Regular classes are offered at a convenient location, just off the I-15 on State Street in Sandy, Utah.

Why focus on attachment?

Not unlike the attachment that can form between a child and their parents who obtains nurturing, soothing and protection, couples learn that they are emotionally attached and dependent on their partner. Dr. Sue Johnson explains that to enhance or save a relationship partners must learn to be open, attuned and responsive to each other and to reestablish emotional connections.

What to expect during the class.

During the class couple’s will receive instruction about the seven conversations, ask questions, watch video and process as a group the new concepts. Each couple will then have an opportunity to process together the new concepts and practice new skills. A therapist is available and present in the room to assist couples and help them process the new material. Homework assignments are given each week to help consolidate learning. Couples are encouraged to purchase the Hold Me Tight book and complete reading assignments as the class progresses.
