Dr. Sue Johnson on LOVE: Science & Sense – not Sentiment. What every couple needs to know
The Greater Victoria Citizens' Counselling Centre is pleased to announce that Dr. Sue Johnson will be doing a one-night engagement in honour of the Centre’s 50th anniversary.
Dave Dunnet Theatre (at Oak Bay High)
Best-selling author Dr. Sue Johnson is founding Director of the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) and Distinguished Research Professor at Alliant University in San Diego, California, as well as Professor Emeritus, Clinical Psychology, at the University of Ottawa, Canada.
Dr. Johnson has received a variety of awards acknowledging her development of EFT and her significant contribution to the field of couple and family therapy and adult attachment. Johnson was appointed in 2017 as a Member of the Order of Canada and was named Psychologist of the Year by APA in 2016.
In Johnson’s powerful two-hour talk, she will explain why it is that our love relationships matter so much, how they go wrong, and how to put them right again.
“Romantic love is not the least bit illogical or random. It is the continuation of an ordered and wise recipe for survival. We now have a map that can guide us in creating, healing and sustaining love. This is a consummate breakthrough,” says Johnson
“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate and honour 50 years of bringing comfort, perspective and encouragement to people in our community, than to bring Sue Johnson to the stage,” says Centre Executive Director Brenda Wilson.
The presentation is a fundraiser for Citizens’ Counselling Centre.
