One of the key assessment tools used by Drs. John and Julie Gottman, and over 10,000 other clinical professionals, is the Gottman Relationship Checkup. Using research-based algorithms, this assessment tool generates unique summary reports for both the clinician and the couple. Validated and highly reliable, the Relationship Checkup reports also provide recommendations to the clinician regarding the couple’s friendship, intimacy, ability to manage conflict, trust, and more.

Developed and refined with over 40 years of research and data from more than 150,000 couples, this relationship assessment tool focuses on the key conditions and behaviors that lead relationships to succeed or fail.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Invite your first couple for free to check out the improved analysis and reports. Once you’ve used the free credit, future couples are $39 each. Each completed assessment includes a followup assessment without charge

How it works…


The Gottman Relationship Checkup is now available to all clinical professionals working with couples! Getting started is as easy as applying to become an approved Gottman Connect provider via a simple, free registration process. While training in the Gottman Method is highly recommended, it is not required – additional tutorials and resources are be available upon account approval.


Once approved, it’s easy to invite your couples to complete the questionnaire. Each partner starts by creating an account with a unique login and password before completing a personal profile that will be associated with their individual responses to the questionnaire. Neither partner can access the other’s information at any time, and we request that you advise them not to share their login information with each other. There is a fee per couple. 


Fully HIPAA compliant, the questionnaire consists of 337 questions about friendship, intimacy, emotions, conflict, values, and trust. It includes questions about parenting, housework, finances, and individual areas of concern. Each partner completes the online questionnaire independently and you receive the results, recommendations, and reports as soon as they have both submitted their responses.


You will be notified as soon as both partners have submitted their questionnaires. From your dashboard you will be able to view and download detailed reports that include responses, areas of concern in the relationship, and suggested treatment options. This will prepare you to develop a treatment plan that precisely focuses on the unique needs of each couple. The system includes a detailed report you can provide your couples to help them understand their strengths and challenges and begin their journey to a stronger relationship.
