Relationship Rx, a study by Kristina Gordon, associate professor of psychology at UT was highlighted in the Knoxville News Sentinel. ┬áIt seeks to determine if periodic check-ups can keep relationships strong and healthy for a lifetime by increasing intimacy, improving communication, and promoting greater acceptance of each partner, among other outcomes.
