The Gottman Relationship Checkup
The Gottman Relationship Checkup is an online tool that is comprised of 480 questions which cover five categories of importance to healthy and satisfying relationships. Each partner is provided a private (and separate) link to the Checkup, and once each partner has completed the questions, a report is generated with the results of your current relationship health. This report is sent directly to Denise and she will then provide the results of your assessment during your 90 minute live videocoaching session.
Who is this for?
This is an amazing tool for healthy couples who are hoping to stay that way. This option is for healthy couples such as those considering a commitment or marriage, or couples who feel good about their relationship but know that it’s important to continue to prevent issues from surfacing.This path is designed to offer couples a basic relationship health checkup. You can validate that “Yes! Our relationship is strong and on the right track!” And, like most healthy couples, you will learn more about what could make your already good relationship even better.
For couples struggling with the connection, communication, specific issues such as family or origin boundaries, relationships with ex’s, constant conflicts and misunderstandings, etc… This is a great tool to help you access the heart of your relationship issues quickly and effectively. You can expedite the coaching process, or possibly gain the insights and strategies you need to begin working on your relationship without pursuing professional assistance. The Gottman Relationship Checkup is a great way to get a very detailed overview of your relationship, as well as a detailed roadmap of where to begin focusing your efforts to improve your relationship. You will receive separate (private) reports for each partner with specific steps to get you moving in the direction of a “better us,” as well as a relationship overview for you to explore as a couple.
- One report will provide a general relationship overview and interpretation of the checkup results. This will include specific observations about what is working and what needs attention, as well as suggestions and strategies for how to begin doing that work together.
- Separately, each partner will receive a second report about his or her individual strengths and challenges, along with specific suggestions to assist each partner in taking personal steps toward a healthier relationship.
- One 90 minute live video session with Denise Levy, BSW. Both partners must attend the live video session.
Depending on the complexity of your relationship issues, and whether or not you choose to provide additional comments, this typically takes from one to two hours to complete.
If I am unable to complete the Checkup in one sitting will it save my answers?
You can login multiple times to complete your survey. The program will save your confidential information in your password-protected login area.
Will my partner see my answers?
No. You will not have access to one another’s answers unless you decide to share your passwords. This is discouraged, however, because it can diminish the effectiveness of the assessment. (It’s important that you answer the questions knowing that no one but you and the coach will see them).
Do I have to answer ALL of the questions?
Yes. There are also areas for additional comment if you wish to expand on your answer.
