Identifying key areas of concern will help ensure that you and your partner strengthen and bulletproof your relationship. 


The Gottman Assessment is an online questionnaire that each individual takes to explore areas of their relationship. It is composed of 480 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust, as well as parenting, housework, finances, individual areas of concern, and more. The actual time it takes to complete each assessment varies based on individual responses, the complexity of relationship dynamics, and the optional use of comment areas to provide additional information about the relationship. On average, you can expect to spend between 1-2 hours completing the questionnaire.  The assessment produces a standardized profile of the relationship across 5 domains. 

  • Friendship and Intimacy

  • Trust & Safety

  • Conflict Management

  • Shared Meaning

  • Individual Areas of Concern

The Gottman Assessment

The Assessment

How well do you know really know yourself, your partner, or the risks you both can face in your relationship? Relationships are continuously vulnerable and can bring up some of the most emotionally difficult aspects of who we are. In relationships we need to effectively manage emotions and learn how to deal with conflict. If we're unable to to do, we're putting ourselves and the relationship at risk to criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling. This is what the Gottman's identified as the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse which have a 93% chance of predicting divorce. 


The questionnaire is completely confidential, fully HIPAA compliant, and your therapist will be the only person to see your responses. The Gottman Relationship Checkup is a breakthrough in couple’s therapy as it allows for a confidential, efficient way for your clinician to complete the evaluation process. By using this new technology, your assessment can be done at any time and in the setting of your choice. Upon completion, it automatically provides valuable clinical information by pinpointing specific strengths and challenges in your relationship.

This assessment is normally part of a treatment protocol where each partner is curious, open and willing to dive into the process of healing, nurturing, or growing their relationship. Once you and your therapist set up and decide that this an appropriate assessment, the following will steps will follow.

1. Accept your invitation
Your therapist will send each of you a separate email inviting you to The Gottman Relationship


2. Create a private profile
Once you have accepted the email invitation to join The Gottman Relationship Checkup, you and your partner will each create individual, separate profiles.

3. Complete the questionnaire
You and your partner will each complete your own questionnaire at your convenience. Stop and start at anytime. Neither partner will be able to access the other’s information at any point in the process. In order to pre-serve the integrity and accuracy of the tool, you are encouraged not to share your responses with each other or log in to your partner’s account. The actual time it takes to complete each assessment varies, but it will take, on average, about two hours.

4. Get your results
When you have both completed your individual questionnaires, your therapist will be notified
and will be able to securely log in to review your scores and the analysis of your relationship. Your
therapist will be able to discuss the results with you and suggest a treatment plan for improving and strengthening your relationship.
