Formal assessments in this area can help to identify your strengths and weaknesses and provide a clearer path forward for your improved relationship care. The Gottman assessments are helpful in identifying your levels of symptoms in your relationship objectively. While assessments can vary from individual to individual, most times they include testing, interviews, observation, and consultation with one of Insight’s trained professionals. Many of these assessments can be done as part of therapy but some may require a higher level of formality depending on the level of need and purpose of the assessment.
What is a Gottman relationship checkup?
The Gottman Relationship Checkup is an assessment that reveals and scores a couple’s strengths and areas for improvement, with recommendations for ways to improve areas of concern. It is designed as a tool for use by the therapists at Insight Psychological in a therapeutic setting.
The assessment process
This tool streamlines the relationship assessment process for your therapist, providing personalized, clinical feedback plus specific recommendations for treatment based on your answers.
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.
