More Details About the Assessment.......
We use an online assessment that automatically scores a couple’s strengths and challenges. This clinical tool consists of 480 questions about friendship, intimacy, how well you know your partner, how you manage emotions and conflict, how you share your values and goals, and what gives meaning to your lives. There are additional questions about parenting, housework, finances, trust, and individual areas of concern. The questionnaire is completely confidential, and your relationship specialist will be the only person to see your responses.
The Gottman Relationship Checkup is a breakthrough in couple’s education as it allows for a confidential, efficient way for your relationship specialist to complete the evaluation process. By using this new technology, your assessment can be done at any time and in the setting of your choice! Upon completion, it automatically provides valuable information by pinpointing specific strengths and challenges in your relationship, while also suggesting actionable, research-based recommendations for solutions.
You can feel confident in your results. Drs. John and Julie Gottman created this research-based assessment in collaboration with The Gottman Institute to help couples build a personalized training plan with their relationship specialist. Dr. John Gottman is a clinical psychologist who has completed more than 40 years of research on couple relationships, and is recognized as one of the top 10 most influential relationship specialists of the last quarter century. Dr. Julie Gottman is a highly respected clinical psychologist who is sought internationally by the media and clinical organizations as an expert advisor on relationships. Together, they have dedicated their lives to helping couples, and The Gottman Relationship Checkup is the result of this life work.
How it works:
1. Accept your invitation. Your relationship specialist will send each of you a separate email inviting you to The Gottman Relationship Checkup.
2. Create a private profile. Once you have accepted the email invitation to join The Gottman Relationship Checkup, you and your partner will each create individual, separate profiles.
3. Complete the questionnaire. You and your partner will each complete your own questionnaire at your convenience. Stop and start at anytime. Neither partner will be able to access the other’s information at any point in the process. In order to preserve the integrity and accuracy of the tool, you are encouraged not to share your responses with each other or log in to your partner’s account. The actual time it takes to complete each assessment varies, but it will take, on average, about two hours.
4. Get your results. When you have both completed your individual questionnaires, your relationship specialist will be notified and will be able to securely login to review your scores and the analysis of your relationship. Your relationship specialist will be able to discuss the results with you and suggest a training plan for improving and strengthening your relationship.
