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 … Continue reading Couple Driven versus Counselor or Educator Driven

It simply makes sense for couples at all stages to be … Continue reading It makes sense for couples at all stages to be proactive in understanding and “tuning up” their relationships

The Couple Checkup generates deep and productive conversations that couples would not otherwise have

While the value of couple assessments are well documented (Knutson and Olson, 2003; Worthington et al., 1995), they have historically not been readily available to couples.
