Couple Driven versus Counselor or Educator Driven

PREPARE/ENRICH requires a certified facilitator (counselor, clergy, mentor couple) to manage the process in terms of administration, scoring, and payment for the assessment. The trained facilitator receives the computer report and provides feedback to the couple based on their results, but the report is meant for the trained facilitator to interpret and retain. It is a counselor-controlled and counselor-facilitated process from start to finish. 

The strengths of this counselor-facilitated model mainly involve the knowledge, support and resources offered by the counselor. Couples have a natural point of contact who can objectively interpret the assessment
in the context of their larger relationship issues and history. If the couple is seriously distressed, the facilitator can assist or make an appropriate referral.

The Couple Checkup, on the other hand, is more of a couple-driven process. Couples themselves access the assessment online, where they enter a pre-paid voucher code or credit card payment. They set up their own couple account and take the checkup online from any computer with internet access. Once the second partner has finished, the results are immediately processed for the couple to download as a PDF report to be viewed online, printed, or saved. When working with a counselor or pastor, couples often print or email a copy of their Couple Checkup Report to their facilitator.

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have about their relationship.  These conversations restore insight and understanding about one another.  The Couple Checkup can help to revive a relationship and increase intimacy.

The Couple Checkup is an online couple assessment based on the PREPARE/ENRICH couple inventories. The Checkup assessment and Checkup report are designed to go directly to couples at any stage of their relationship (dating, engaged or married). The online system allows for dynamic customization of the assessment to each couple based on how the couple answers background questions.

The goal is for the Couple Checkup to reach a more diverse group of couples, to empower couples to deal with issues on their own and to emphasize prevention over remediation.
