Decide If Polyamory Is Right For Your Relationship

Before the therapy begins, you will both be given access to an online Relationship Checkup.

The Gottman Relationship Checkup is an online assessment tool created by Drs. John and Julie Gottman in collaboration with The Gottman Institute in Seattle, Washington. The assessment is composed of 480 questions in five categories: Friendship and Intimacy, The Conflict Scales, The Shared Meaning System, and Individual Areas of Concern. Question topics include friendship, intimacy, conflict, finances, children, trust, commitment, drug and alcohol screenings, and individual issues that can put a relationship at risk.

You will each access it confidentially and will not be able to see each other’s answers. Your clinician will get the results and have specific areas to work on with you based on that assessment. The overall assessment takes about one and a half hours to complete. However, you can work on it in small increments as it will save as you go. We often find it helpful to plan activities that feel like a vacation such as reservations for dinner, and making arrangements to have childcare so you can focus on yourselves.
