Relationship Evaluation Project
Impact is currently recruiting 30 couples to participate in a six week Relationship Evaluation Project in conjunction with Auburn University and Alabama Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education Initiative.
Each couple will be assigned at random to one of three groups by Auburn University. (Impact will not have any influence in who is assigned to each group.)
One group will attend the Couples Connecting Mindfully course. The second group will attend the Elevate Course.
The third group will only do the survey.
Participants in each group will take five surveys at specific times throughout the process.
Couples will receive $50 each for baseline, post program, six month and 1 year surveys, and $100 for a 2 year follow up.
