    After listening to multiple interviews of Sue Johnson and listening to the audio version of “Hold me Tight” years ago, I think I finally see the foundation of her theory. She’s talking about Love not just as an emotion as in “falling in love” but Love as in any of what have been called universal human needs by some and desires by others. They are all the different flavors of Love such as connection, safety, autonomy, respect, consideration and all the rest. She’s also pointing out how the stress responses caused by fear of not having these needs/desires met blocks them from being met.

      Excellent recap, that is what I got from her book also. I look forward to listening to this episode to see what you mean in relation to the work. Thank you Rich, for listening and sharing =)
