News Sentinel: UT prof hopes preventive care program will help subjects avoid problems

Relationship Rx, a study by Kristina Gordon, associate professor of psychology at UT was highlighted in the Knoxville News Sentinel.  It seeks to determine if periodic check-ups can keep relationships strong and healthy for a lifetime by increasing intimacy, improving communication, and promoting greater acceptance of each partner, among other outcomes. The article interviewed a couple who had undergone the check-up. “The sessions not only helped us get stuff out in the open, they allowed me to recognize when there was an argument waiting to happen,” said one of the participants.
