FAQ's

Q. What’s the difference between Family Profiles, Parent Profiles, and Teen Profiles?
A. “Family Profiles” is the overarching term we use to refer to a combination of individual profiles from all members of your family. Parent Profile questionnaires are completed by each parent. The resulting report describes the parent’s strengths and parenting style. Teen Profile questionnaires are completed by each teen in the family. The resulting report describes the teen’s strengths and how he or she applies them in family relationships.

African American familyQ. Should we fill out our questionnaires together?
A. No. Each parent and teen should fill out his or her profile questionnaire individually. Profiles can completed at anytime from any internet-connected computer.

Q. How do I purchase profiles for my entire family?
A. When you purchase profiles online, you will designate an email delivery address (or addresses) on the order form. You will receive a receipt for your complete purchase onscreen. Simultaneously, an email receipt will be sent immediately to every email address you designate, whether your own or many. The email will include instructions for each individual recipient, including a website address they can click on and a personalized response link (single-use password code) to use in order to complete the questionnaire. Recipients go to the website, enter their single-use password code, and complete the questionnaire.

Q. How should we use the profile reports?
A. The profile reports provide a springboard for discussion and growth in your family. After each family member has completed the questionnaire and received their personal profile report, set aside a time to discuss the results. Use the Family Insights Process Guide to steer your discussion. Remind family members that using the Family Insights Profiles is an ongoing process. Ask family members to commit to reinforcing what they learn about themselves and each other.
