HOW IS OUR RELATIONSHIP DOING?


Good communication is important for all successful relationships. When communication breaks down, so do many other aspects of a relationship. The problem is, communication rarely breaks down overnight. It is a subtle wearing away that is oftentimes difficult to see happening. Gauging your communication and understanding some of your patterns together is a very helpful way to begin assessing the state of your relationship. Respond with "true" or "false" to the following statements. When finished, compare your score to the assessment scale below.

False

Assessment Score:

ASSESSMENT SCALE

0-8: ON THE BRINK. Communication has broken down, and is most likely impacting all areas of your relationship.

9-15: HOLDING STEADY. Not bad, but you could make some adjustments to avoid the Brink.

16-20: FAR FROM THE BRINK. Fantastic job. You are wonderful communicators. Nothing to worry about.

NEED HELP COMMUNICATING BETTER?

In our Imago sessions, better communication between partners is always a priority. We find when we unblock stuck and unhelpful communication patterns, and people have an opportunity to really understand one another, better communication always follows. This is difficult to achieve without the skill and knowledge of a trained relationship specialist. Give us a call at 305-251-8609 to discuss how we can help you.
