PREPARE is a research-based program designed to help couples build a stronger and happier marriage. The program consists of at least six 2-hour sessions that focus on (1) your strengths/growing areas; (2) communication; (3) managing conflict; (4) family life experiences; (5) financial plans and budgeting; and (6) setting goals. Participation in the PREPARE program requires that you and our partner complete an online inventory which will identify your strengths as a couple and areas of growth in a variety of areas that matter in healthy marriages. This information is then used to help facilitate discussion during each session.
