“Relationship checkups help us maintain and strengthen the emotional bond we have with a romantic partner. Our emotional bond needs routine reviews like car maintenance or visiting the dentist every six months to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. Scheduling a relationship checkup for your romantic relationship is one way to routinely check in with our partners to see how the relationship is going,” said Tracey Werner-Wilson, director of the UK Family Center.
After scheduling an appointment, "couples can expect to complete a brief questionnaire that asks them questions about their relationship, including questions about how often they have fun together, level of comfort and respect with partner, etc. Our therapists will review the responses of couples to identify strengths in their relationships," said Ron Werner-Wilson, a professor in the UK Department of Family Sciences, who supervises students in the couple and family therapy program. Feb. 7-16 (except Sunday)
