Prepare/Enrich Premarital Counseling Training

PE Banner

Prepare/Enrich is the leading relationship inventory and skill-building program used nationally and internationally.  It is built on a solid research foundation and significantly improves a couple’s relationship. PREPARE/ENRICH is custom tailored to a couple’s relationship and provides couple exercises to build their relationship skills.

I have used the Prepare/Enrich program for over 15 years and have been a trainer for four years.  This program has helped me make premarital sessions meaningful and impactful.  This has been particularly true for weddings that include couples that are not part of our congregational life.  This simple tool gives a quick and insightful snapshot of the couples relationship.  

More than Premarital

This training is more than just a premarital program.  Prepare/Enrich offers inventories that are useful in helping everyone in a long-term relationship identify their strengths and areas of growth.

  • Resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model
  • Develop a more balanced relationship
