The PREPARE/ENRICH program is available for those that would like to participate in either evaluating their current relationship in preparation for marriage or for a married couple that would like to assess their marital health in search for potential growth areas. The program is scientifically validated as a foundational program for premarital education, marriage enrichment, couples therapy, marriage mentoring and marriage education.
PREPARE/ENRICH has been in existence for thirty years and further improved and refined over the years to become one of the best, most effective, easy-to-use relationship assessment tools available. Over 100,000 facilitators have been trained and 3,000,000 couples have gone through the program.
The program is designed to use "the facilitator" who is a trained individual instrumental in preparing couples for success, guiding them through the evaluation process and program tools. Information on how to become a facilitator can be found below.
Interested couples work together with the facilitator to become enrolled into the program which allows the couple to:
- Identify strength and growth areas
- Explore personality traits
- Strengthen communication skills
- Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
- Compare family backgrounds
- Comfortably discuss financial issues
- Establish personal, couple, and family goals
The facilitator enrolls the couple into the online system for joint fee of $30 which the couple can pay for directly online. The program begins with the couple each taking an online evaluation which takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The completed evaluation generates a number of reports, charts and graphs which the facilitator will review and share with the couple in series of scheduled meetings designed to further guide the couple through discussing and discovering potential growth areas. A variety of tools and workbook exercises will guide both the facilitator and couple through the process.
