Together, in collaboration with The Gottman Institute, clinical psychologists Dr. John Gottman and Dr Julie Gottman have created this research-based assessment tool, the Gottman Relationship Check Up, for therapists to use with couples as a method for learning the strengths and challenges of a relationship, and to determine a treatment plan.
The questionnaire is composed of 480 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust, as well as parenting, housework, finances, individual areas of concern, and more.
The actual time it takes to complete each assessment varies based on individual responses, the complexity of relationship dynamics, and the optional use of comment areas to provide additional information about the relationship. On average, you can expect to spend between 1-2 hours completing the questionnaire.
When you have both completed your individual questionnaires, your therapist will be notified and will be able to securely log in to review your scores and the analysis of your relationship. Your therapist will be able to discuss the results with you and suggest a treatment plan for improving and strengthening your relationship.
Couples Intake assessments are performed separately, and can be booked back to back, or on different times/days. The Gottman Relationship Checkup Assessment is an additional $29 per couple, is paid directly at the secure website that is accessed via a personalized link I will send to each of you, and must be completed prior to the Intake Assessment Session.
