We know couple relationships are quite complex and take on many variations such as dating, engaged, cohabiting, married, blended families, and older couples. Instead of there being one standard Couple Checkup tool, there are many variations of the assessment that different couples will experience as they progress through the checkup process. This ensures maximum relevance for each couple’s relationship needs.
One of the innovative features of the Couple Checkup is it is customised for each couple, automatically adapting to maximize the relevance for couples in different relationship stages and relationship structures. Unlike previous assessment tools that assess overall couple functioning across predefined scales, the Couple Checkup is dynamically customised, based on how a set of introductory decision tree questions are answered.
The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship. hese 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.
