While the value of couple assessments are well documented (Knutson and Olson, 2003; Worthington et al., 1995), they have historically not been readily available to couples. Couples could only access an assessment through a counselor or minister, but not every couple is involved in a church program and most do not seek marriage counselling. Further, while many groups and programs like the idea of including a couple assessment with their curriculum, the certification and administration process of traditional approaches are found to be cumbersome and have caused some programs to go without an assessment.
The Couple Checkup has been designed to quickly and easily come alongside existing programs and curriculum without the usual paperwork and facilitation demands. This flexibility of the online tool allows counsellors, group facilitators, or retreat leaders to focus on the content of their program knowing couples have already reviewed their own Couple Checkup reports and are primed to receive feedback and direction to help address their specific issues.
The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another. The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.
The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions. The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
