This study represents a Time 1 intervention and a three-month follow-up at Time 2 to assess the impact of a relationship education program adapted from Gottman’s nine skills of communication. The researchers mapped the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral learning outcomes generated by using the AIAI-FTFD start-to-finish teaching model while completing the 9 Important Communication Skills for Every Relationship (9 Skills) program. A self-reported retrospective pre-then-post survey instrument was utilized to assess these learning outcomes in the sample at Time 1 (N = 58) and again three months later at Time 2 (N = 55). The results were calculated using effect size to quantify standardized mean changes. Implications for how the AIAI-FTFD teaching model can facilitate change and learning in relationship educational settings are discussed.
