ABOUT THE Prepare / Enrich Assessment
When someone is sick, a doctor can perform medical tests to diagnose and then treat the problem. In contrast, many marriage counselors try to do marriage therapy without doing any relationship assessment. Therapy takes longer and is less effective unless quality marital assessment is a part of the process.
The Prepare/Enrich relationship inventory is like an MRI revealing the strength and growth areas of your relationship. It can be used for engaged couples who are getting ready for marriage, or married couples who need help identifying the root of their problems. Since 1980 over 4 million people have taken Prepare (for engaged couples) or Enrich (for married couples).
Taken online at home, this tool gives you a score in 11 different areas of your relationship:
- Conflict Resolution
- Personality Issues
- Financial Management
- Sexual Expectations
- Marital Satisfaction
- Leisure Activities
- Children and Parenting
- Family and Friends
- Role Relationship
- Spiritual Beliefs
Once completed, The Atlanta Center for Marriages can use Prepare / Enrich to celebrate relationship strengths and target growth areas to discuss in counseling.
