Complete Love Lab Relationship Health Assessment:

Your Love Lab Relationship Health Assessment begins with a careful and thorough assessment of your current relationship. There are several steps in this assessment process:

  1. Questionnaires: You will each complete a series of questionnaires that help me understand your relationship satisfaction. You will be sent a link where you will create an account via the Gottman Connect website. Please remember your password since you will need to log into this account again. Provide answers to the items in the questionnaire as best you can. It is important that each person completes all of the questionnaires independently; you will not review one another's responses. Some of the questions provide a space for adding notes to the answers.  I read each of the notes, so please make use of this feature when appropriate.

  2. First Meeting: Our initial meeting will be with both of you together. We will discuss your current situation, your history as a couple and answer any questions you might have about the process.

  3. Videos: You will make two video - a) Events of the week Conversation - this is a recording of a ten-minute conversation about the events of the past week; b) Conflict Conversation: The second video is a recording of a ten-minute conversation about an actual area of conflict or disagreement between you.

  4. Video Rating: You will each be asked to give a rating of how you were feeling as the two conversations progressed. The results of the rating dial provides a powerful tool in understanding your relationship and that information will be included for you in a report.  You will be provided with instructions for this at your initial consultation.

  5. Individual Sessions: You will each attend an individual 60 minute consultation with Trish to obtain your personal history.  This helps Trish get a deeper understanding of your perspective and experience in your world.

  6. Feedback Session: All of the information you have shared is brought together in a report that will help bring a new understanding about the relationship and help set the goals for the therapy.This evaluation is helpful in understanding your relationship and charting the way forward for an improved future.

  7. The Relationship Builder Program - in addition to all of the above you will receive lifetime access to the complete series of videos, exercises and information for this program developed by Drs John and Julie Gottman to help support your understanding and practice of the new relationship skills we will be working on developing.
