Our program is based on the PREPARE-ENRICH program, which has helped over 3 million+ couples over the last 40 years grow closer together, gain awareness of their strengths and work areas, improve their communication and understanding of each other, and become aware of potential pitfalls in marriage and how to avoid them and keep their relationship strong.
At the heart of the PREPARE program is an online assessment questionnaire that takes about 45-minutes to complete and looks in-depth at all areas of your relationship. You and your partner each complete the questionnaire separately. Your therapist then reviews highlights of your questionnaire results with you, and uses the questionnaire to facilitate discussion about various aspects of your relationship over a series of sessions with you and your partner, typically six to eight sessions.
Each session focuses on a different aspect of your relationship. Topics include communication and how you handle your differences, finances, the impact of family and friends in your life and the patterns you learned in your family and that you bring with you into your relationship, how you handle expectations for marriage, and how you make decisions about roles and responsibilities within the relationship, and more.
