This site utilizes a personalized approach, instead of forcing participants into a "one-size-fits-all" approach.
"The web site helps participants discover their own personal style to conflict resolution. It lets participants understand advantages and disadvantages of different techniques and sort through many options that are available for building strong communication with their partner.
"It''s one of the few programs on the Internet that does that," Sanford, an associate professor of psychology and neuroscience at Baylor who designed the web site, said." he said.

The scores also help a participant resolve a particular conflict and introduce them to all the reasons of their conflict and all the aspects which cause conflict in relationship. The feedback gives recommendations on areas to address for improved conflict resolution.
