East Tennessee MFTs Next Luncheon Meeting

Knoxville, TN 37919
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Dr. Kristina Gordon will be presenting on “The Marriage Check-up”
About the Presentation:
This talk will provide an overview of a new motivational intervention, provided by the Relationship Rx Program, that helps couples address problems in their marriage before they become too big to solve. The Marriage Checkup is not therapy, but an informational health service that provides confidential, personalized feedback designed to help couples keep their relationship on track. We will also provide new and exciting data from a long-term federally-funded clinical trial that evaluated the efficacy of this program and discuss our experiences with an on-going federally funded project occurring here in Knoxville that examines how to implement this program with a low-income and diverse population.
