Couples Counseling Homework - Week 6

Welcome to Week 6!


This week is just like week 1 but with different questions. If you need a refresher, it’s below. If you don’t need it, skip straight to the questions and have fun!

This week’s couples counseling homework is being influenced by the Gottman’s work to get to know your partner’s world more intimately. Your partner will have to answer the questions for you and then you will give a reason WHY behind the answers. For example, Sarah says to her partner, name my 2 closest friends. Her partner answers / guesses “Suzy and Heather” and then Sarah says “yes” if the guess is correct or says “nice try but it’s actually “Ashley and Lindsey” and then gives the reason WHY those 2 are her best friends. You want there to be a reason WHY behind the answers. Then you swap and take turns going back and forth answering all the questions. This is done face to face for an engaging conversation so dig deeper and ask more questions about the answers if you feel like it. Have fun!
