Imagine being able to understand each other better and build an even more loving relationship, that just gets stronger over a lifetime.
In our workshop, you will learn what is at the root of most conflicts between you and your partner, and how to change those moments through a proven method that all couples can do.
Our *Hold Me Tight® Workshop for Couples is based on Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and the international best-selling book "Hold Me Tight: 7 Conversations for a Lifetime of Love" by Dr. Sue Johnson.
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has been shown through research to be the most effective approach to helping couples:
This is an educational and experiential program for couples given in an intimate, warm, indoor/outdoor setting; the format and schedule include: Educational talks, video presentations, and couple's exercises (in private, not in front of the group), with a catered lunch brought in each day (dietary preferences of attendees are always taken into consideration).
*Hold Me Tight© Workshops are given all over the world. Since 2010, Dr. Diana Weiss-Wisdom has been facilitating these transformative weekend retreats for couples at her charming Cottage Clinic in Rancho Santa Fe, California. She offers 3-4 weekend retreats a year.
The weekend takes place in a nature retreat on private property in Rancho Santa Fe, California (North Coastal San Diego, California). It is a relaxing and peaceful setting that promotes relaxation and enjoying quality time with your partner in nature.

Why train with the EMDR Readiness Academy?
We are a boutique training agency dedicated to excellence in preparing clinicians to provide safe and effective EMDR therapy.
In order to provide personalized support in integrating EMDR therapy into clinical practice, we strictly limit Basic Training Consultation to groups of 4 (versus the standard of 10 per group permitted by EMDRIA).
Each member of our team of facilitators/consultants has advanced skills in applying EMDR therapy to developmental/attachment trauma and dissociation, which is essential for navigating the real-world complexity of using EMDR therapy with clients.
Our team is comprised of specialists with expertise in treating specific populations with EMDR therapy, allowing you the opportunity to choose a consultant experienced in a treatment area of interest to you.
Come in your comfy clothes! We have chosen a warm, restorative setting that is ideal for learning and practicing EMDR therapy skills for the first time – or as a refresher course.
Why become an EMDR therapist?
Trauma-informed treatment is increasingly recognized as essential for addressing the underlying vulnerability caused by Adverse Childhood Events (ACE). Higher ACE scores have been associated with a markedly increased incidence of mental health disorders, addictions, and medical conditions.
Advances in the EMDR therapy field have created an understanding of how “second generation” EMDR therapy can be used to treat the effects of insecure attachment, unmet developmental needs, and the “small t” traumas of adverse life events that can underlie and drive anxiety, depression, and other emotional, behavioral, and relationship difficulties.
EMDR therapy was initially developed to treat trauma in the late 1980’s and has been been researched extensively in the decades since. Over 24 randomized controlled trials – the gold standard of study in the field – have provided empirical validation of its efficacy.
EMDR therapy has been assigned to Category A as “strongly recommended” for the treatment of trauma by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense (2004, 2010). EMDR Therapy has been included in SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (2011) for the reductions of trauma-related stress, anxiety, and depression. Most recently in 2013, the WHO (World Health Organization) has formally approved the recommendation of EMDR Therapy for adults and children with PTSD.
Completing a Basic Training approved by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) provides the foundation for learning to safely and effectively use EMDR therapy in clinical practice. EMDRIA-Approved Basic Trainings undergo rigorous review to ensure quality standards and are required to provide a minimum of 20 hours of instruction, 20 hours of supervised practicum, and 10 hours of consultation.

6.5 CE Credits – Conference approved by California Psychological Association– Office of Professional Development to sponsor continuing professional education to California licensed PSY/LMFT/LCSW. (#SOU042) Sothern CA Education & Training maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
One of the later concepts added to Bowen Theory’s eight concepts, the concept of “Cut-off,” addresses the emotional distance that develops between generations in a family system. More colloquially the term has been employed to describe the emotional distance that can occur between family members, not just cross-generationally. The loss of emotional contact can occur in many ways marked by intense anger to a gradual slow-drifting loss of contact over time. This conference will review the concept of cut-off, it’s appearance and function for the family unit and the benefits and costs that flow from it. It will also review the clinician’s efforts to address cut-off in a family system. While each clinician may approach it slightly differently, the basic techniques of coaching appear to be universal and will be discussed.
