PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple’s strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital coaching and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple’s assessment results, a trained facilitator provides a number of feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.
Over the last 30 years, the PREPARE/ENRICH relationship assessment has empowered and energized more than 3 million couples. It is the #1 relationship inventory and couples assessment tool.
There are several goals of the PREPARE/ENRICH Program. In order to achieve these goals there are exercises designed to help couples improve their relationship skills. The program helps couples:
- Explore strength and growth areas
- Strengthen communication skills
- Identify and manage major stressors
- Resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model
- Develop a more balanced relationship
- Explore family of origin issues
- Discuss financial planning and budgeting
- Establish personal, couple and family goals
- Understand and appreciate personality differences
Extensive research has been done on the effectiveness of the PREPARE/ENRICH program and the results are astounding. It has been found that out of 12 relationship scales, couples who only took the assessment improved in 4 scales from that alone. And couples who took the assessment and participated in feedback sessions improved in 10 out of 12 scales. This is really an invaluable tool for marriage preparation!
My fee for the PREPARE/ENRICH program is a flat rate of $400. That includes the online relationship assessment, travel to your location of choice (within 25 miles) for three 90-minute feedback sessions, and a printed and bound couples report to keep. Additional sessions may be added by request. I am available for PREPARE/ENRICH coaching even if I am not your wedding officiant.
