​     Premarital  & Marital Counseling

Since 1992, I have been using the #1 Premarital Counseling Questionnaire known as

PREPARE / ENRICH, helping couples reach the highest levels of relationship health!


WHY ASSESS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH PREPARE/ENRICH?

For over thirty years, PREPARE/ENRICH has led the way in helping couples explore and strengthen their relationships. The main component of the program is an online survey you each complete in about 60 minutes. PREPARE/ENRICH is not just any survey. The items you respond to are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital or married relationship. You'll meet with a facilitator trained to provide feedback by helping you understand your results and learn important relationship skills. Built on a solid research foundation, PREPARE/ENRICH has been improved and refined over the years to become one of the best, most effective, easy-to-use relationship assessment tools available.

Over the last 30 years, the PREPARE/ENRICH relationship assessment has empowered and energized more than 3 million couples. It is the number 1 premarital inventory and couples assessment tool.

PREPARE/ENRICH will help you:

  • 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

 
PREPARE/ENRICH assesses these areas of your relationship:

  • 12 Relationship Scales -- communication, conflict resolution, roles, sexuality, finances, spiritual beliefs, and more
  • 5 SCOPE Personality Scales
  • 4 Couple and Family Scales -- based on Circumplex Model
  • 4 Relationship Dynamic Scales
  • 30 Customized Scales


Is the PREPARE/ENRICH Program valid & reliable?

  • An important strength of the PREPARE/ENRICH Inventory is their strong psychometric properties. High levels of reliability and validity have been found for each instrument, making them valuable tools for research as well as clinical use.
  • National Norms based on over 500,000 couples
  • High Levels of Validity and Reliability
  • PREPARE has validity in that it discriminates premarital couples that get divorced from those that are happily married with about 80-85% accuracy. Reliability is high (alpha reliability of .80 - .85).


 Who uses PREPARE/ENRICH?

  • The inventory has been utilized by over 100,000 trained clergy (like Jeff), professional counselors, and marriage educators throughout the U.S.
  • Over 3 million couples have taken a PREPARE/ENRICH inventory and worked through their results under the guidance of these trained facilitators.


HOW WE WILL USE "PREPARE AND ENRICH" IN OUR COUNSELING

     Once you pay the initial half of the $400.00 fee, I will arrange for you to receive an email from Life Innovations Inc., the scorer of the assessment.  Using instructions from the email and other guidance I provide to you, each of you complete the online survey alone, without input from your partner.  Once you have both completed the online assessment, I receive email notification and print out 25 pages of highly sophisticated results. 

      We will meet for three 90-minute confidential sessions.  In the first session,  I will provide each of you with a 10 page summary of your results, printed by Life Innovations, and explain what it all means.  Then we will discuss in depth one of your couple strength areas and one growth area, and explore some communication and conflict resolution skills to help you improve in your growth area.  In session two, we'll discuss another strength area and another growth area, this time practicing some of the communication techniques you learned in the first session.  In session three, we'll discuss one more strength area and one more growth area, employing the skills you have been learning.  Along the way, the conversation is peppered with many elements of biblical wisdom for relationships with the viewpoint that a husband and wife are equal and serve one another under Christ. 


No matter how long couples have dated or even lived together, they always discover new things about themselves, each other, and their relationship.  They also learn new perspectives and skills for relating more intimately with each other and more effectively with family members and even friends and people at work.  Couples always say they are grateful for the experience and feel the cost was not an expense but a true investment in helping them keep their lifelong vows in a thriving relationship under God.


COST

The total fee for the assessment, counseling time, and materials is $400.00, payable in two increments as indicated in the tab, "Fees and Deposit."
