Saturday Luncheon Address
Clinical psychologist and groundbreaking researcher, Susan Johnson is the developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which focuses on uncovering and deepening attachment bonds to heal troubled relationships. In 2016, she was named Psychologist of the Year by the American Psychological Association, and received an award for outstanding research by the American Family Therapy Academy. She’s author of The Love Secret, Hold Me Tight, The Practice of Emotionally Focused Therapy, and numerous other books. Throughout her distinguished career, for which she received the Order of Canada, Johnson has established that it’s not an oxymoron to speak of the “science of love.”
In this address, she’ll discuss how in today’s world—where close, exclusive relationships are often framed as incidentals rather than essentials in people’s lives, and a commitment like marriage as a quaint, unnecessary custom—we have the power to shape our intimate relationships as couples in ways that lead to true, secure connection, even when the pathway there is dark and hidden.
