Learn how to increase your intimacy using a simple model called CLEAVE and get a visual image of intimacy in your relationship using a tool called scaling.  You can either use the worksheets or practice scaling in your own home.  Spend at least a week working on the CLEAVE intervention between beginning and ending this module.

This intervention is for couples who want to get closer and gain more intimacy in their relationship, and the intervention accomplishes that through the six-part acronym of CLEAVE and the scaling self-assessment.
