The HMT Program for Families with Adult Children
Adult children and their parents remain a family for more decades than ever before. Roles keep changing and with these shifts, moments of distress are inevitable, and insecurity triggered. We often don’t know how to be with each other.
With the help of theory, exercises, structured private family conversations and group support, the Hold Me Tight®/Let Me Be Me Program shows participants how to reframe their needs for
connection to better fit each of the stages they find themselves facing as a family. The program shows therapists how to facilitate these generation-to-generation conversations.
Hold Me Tight®/Let Me Be Me — Generation to Generation Conversations for Families with Adult Children developed by Drs. Nancy & Paul Aikin
The Hold Me Tight®/Let Me Be Me Program for Families with Adult Children by Drs. Nancy & Paul Aikin is an adaptation of the original Hold Me Tight® Program: Conversations for Connection by Dr. Sue Johnson and is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy.
