CFR's Relationship Checkup
Our Relationship Checkup is a unique 3-session program, which provides a comprehensive assessment of relationship strengths and weaknesses, a structure for improving communication skills and balance within the relationship. This process will help couples understand the state of their relationship and give them a roadmap for how to improve.
Couples will receive 3 meetings with a Council for Relationships therapist, a customized online assessment (taken by each partner) and a summary report, complete with helpful charts and suggestions.
Relationship Checkup will enable couples to:
- Explore strength and growth areas
- Strengthen communication skills
- Resolve conflict
- Develop a more balanced relationship
- Explore family of origin issues
Session 1: An introductory meeting with a Council therapist, to gather information about relationship history, current issues, and family relationships. A personal genogram (map of family relationships) will be constructed, in addition to the relationship timeline and history. The therapist will explore the relationship dynamics of the couple, explain the online assessment and schedule next visit. On-line assessment (taken by each partner) should be completed after Session 1 and before Session 2 (at least 48 hours prior to Session 2).
Session 2: In this session, the therapist will discuss the results of the online assessment; provide the couple with an overview of the relationship strength and growth areas and the couple typology. The Couple and Family Map will be presented and discussed with focus on the specific concerns and needs of the couple.
Session 3: The focus of this session is to discuss the current Relationship Dynamics based on the assessment and address specific questions and concerns. Some skill-building exercises may be provided to improve communication skills and help resolve conflicts. A plan for the future is discussed. Couples will receive a certificate of completion for the Relationship Checkup.
Just like a regular visit to a physician, dentist or other specialist serves to keep people healthy and catch problems to be addressed, the Relationship Checkup will provide couples with the same opportunity.
