Frequently Asked Questions Get the answers you are looking for

  1. Is this program therapy or marriage counseling?

    The programs we offer are online, self-help programs – they’re not therapy. However, in some ways, our program is better than therapy – you can do it in your own time from wherever you have an Internet connection. And our results show that they’re just as effective (or nearly as effective, depending on the study) as in-person marriage counseling.

  2. Can I talk to a coach or therapist about my relationship?

    If you and your partner complete a program as part of the research study, you may have an initial call with a coach. Additionally, you may be randomly assigned to have three more coach calls as you move through the program. You can schedule those calls during the day, during the evening, or on the weekend. In those calls, your coach will help you apply the skills and lessons you learned in the online activities to your relationship. Unfortunately, we do not currently have coaches available for our programs that are not part of the research study.

  3. How long does it take to complete the program?

    Each program was designed to be completed in about two months, taking roughly 7-8 hours’ time. If you or your partner expects to be very stressed, busy, or out of town for a long time in the next couple of months, it might be a better idea to wait to start the program.

  4. Do these programs work?

    Yes. Our programs have been tested and the results show that the majority of participants were satisfied with these programs and would recommend them to a friend. If you’d like to find out more, you can read the published, peer-reviewed journal article by clicking below.

  7. How much do these programs cost? Do we get paid for doing them?

    If you and your partner complete the programs as part of the research program, you will earn $150 per couple ($75 per person) in gift cards to Amazon, Wal-Mart, or Target (your choice) for completing the program, and filling out a single survey at the end of the program. If you complete the programs outside of the research study, both the couple and individual versions of the program cost $50.
