The Prepare/Enrich program is designed to help couples build strong, lasting relationships. Developed by Dr. David Olson and his colleagues, it's based on decades of research in the fields of psychology and marriage counseling.

The Prepare/Enrich program aims to help couples deepen their understanding of each other, improve their communication and conflict resolution skills, and strengthen their commitment to their relationship. By addressing potential areas of concern early on and providing tools for growth, the program seeks to equip couples with the resources they need to build a healthy and resilient relationship. The program is administered by trained facilitators, such as counselors, therapists, or clergy members, and it can be used for premarital counseling, marriage enrichment, or marriage counseling.

Become a certified Prepare/Enrich Facilitator by attending an in-person training workshop. You'll learn how to use the Prepare/Enrich assessment with couples to provide personalized insights and relationship feedback. The workshop also allows you to meet other Facilitators, ask questions along the way, and tailor the workflow to your specific application. Feel confident adding this tool to your toolbox knowing it's research-backed and proven to reduce the risk for divorce by 30%.

Training is facilitated by staff therapist Nicole Everitt, MA, LPC-S. Learn more about Nicole and her practice here.
