Three Couple Scales (PREPARE/ENRICH) — $50.00
David H. Olson
The Three Couple Scales package contains three 10-item subscales that can be used for research including Satisfaction, Communication, and Conflict Resolution.
The Satisfaction scale provides a global measure of satisfaction by surveying ten areas of the couple's marriage. These areas include the major categories in ENRICH: i.e. personality, role responsibilities, communication, conflict resolution, financial concerns, management of leisure time, sexual relationship, parental responsibilities, relationships with family and friends, and religious orientation.
The Communication scale is concerned with an individual's feelings, beliefs, and attitudes about the communication in his/her relationship. Items focus on the level of comfort felt by both partners in being able to share important emotions and beliefs with each other, the perception of a partner's way of giving and receiving information, and the respondent's perception of how adequately she/he communicates with partner.
The Conflict Resolution scale assesses an individual's attitudes, feelings and beliefs toward the existence and resolution of conflict in his/her relationship. Items focus on the openness of partners to recognize and resolve issues, the strategies and procedures used to end arguments, and their satisfaction with the way problems are resolved.
