Enhancing Assessment in Couples Therapy: New Approaches to Improving Outcomes



When couples come to us in pain, we’re often tempted to jump into treatment before really getting the systemic information we need to work most effectively. We may also worry that couples find the assessment process frustrating, failing to recognize how its impact can heighten their strengths and make them feel understood. In this workshop, we’ll examine the crucial nature of assessment, and introduce a groundbreaking technology solution that will improve outcomes. You’ll discover how to:

  • Conduct a thorough assessment of a couple’s relationship using the Gottman Relationship Checkup
  • Give effective feedback about your clients’ relationship’s strengths and how to best address their areas of concern
  • Develop a personalized treatment plan based on each partner’s responses to the assessment questionnaire
