VIDEO: Susan Johnson on Attachment Issues in the Bedroom

How to Help Couples Have "Hold Me Tight" Conversations

Susan Johnson

When couples leave the consulting room, what keeps them from falling back into the destructive, deep-seated behavioral patterns that brought them there in the first place? In other words, how do in-session breakthroughs become daily habits? "People will take out of the therapy session things that are emotionally meaningful to them," says couples therapist and Networker Symposium Keynote speaker Susan Johnson, author of Love Sense: The Revolutionary New Science of Romantic Relationships.

In a brief video, Susan explains how to create moments of emotional sharing so deep that they automatically translate into couples' lives. This technique helps couples open up about the blocks that have kept them apart and become comfortable with the power of emotion.

Here’s a clip to get you started.
