PREPARE/ENRICH

I am a certified administrator of the PREPARE/ENRICH relationship inventory.

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 counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement.

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
