Couple Functionality Assessment Tool (CFAT): User Guide

The Couple Functionality Assessment Tool (CFAT) is a survey-based toolkit designed to measure key dimensions of couple relationships. Field tested by CRS Malawi, the CFAT will allow CRS country programs and projects that explicitly aim to improve couple functionality to capture valid and reliable data on different components of relationship quality. This tool will also allow projects to test for potential effects of couple functionality on other key project outcomes.
