Is this Program for You?

This program teaches couples to become more attuned, trusting, and open with each other and to more easily handle day-to-day stress and conflict. Based on the book Hold Me Tight, we will discuss key relationship concepts, watch demonstrative video clips, and do guided conversations designed to strengthen and deepen a couple's emotional connection. All experiential exercises take place between partners in order to maintain personal privacy and provide safety. Since this is an educational program and is not therapy, a phone or email screening will be done prior to enrollment.

In a weekend format, this couples workshop serves as a relationship retreat. Taking place at the scenic Smith College Conference Center, participants will have access to walks around campus during the breaks. Lunch is available for purchase at the Smith College Student Center or in downtown Northampton.
