Relationship Pros and Cons Worksheet

What is the theory behind this Relationship Pros and Cons Worksheet?

Many couples seek relationship or couples counselling to sort out and work through the problems and challenges that they are facing as a couple. It can range from mild communication issues to a complete breakdown of trust and understanding. One part of such therapy is to help the individuals realise the worth of their relationship and motivate them to work towards strengthening it. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help couples seeking therapy to take some time out and really think about what they are getting out of this relationship as individuals. It will help them ponder over why they believe their relationship is worth saving and motivate them to put in their share of work to achieve their therapy goals.  

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used in the initial stages of couples counselling to help the therapist get an idea about how willing each individual is to make their relationship work. Instruct each individual to complete the worksheet by answering the given questions as honestly as they can. Responses can then be shared with consent or incorporated into further discussions.
