"As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist most of the couples I work with identify having significant relational difficulties and would consider their relationship to be a devitalized one. The information that the tool provides, allows me to focus on the specific areas that benefit the couple more quickly. Both pre-marital and married couples are made aware of their strengths and growth areas in addition to applying customized feedback from the material generated. Also included are tangible, core exercises that help the couples develop new skills which lead to increased satisfaction. Prepare / Enrich can also be used in a group setting and is a great way for new and seasoned practitioners to market themselves to prospective employers as well as a new potential client base. If you have not been trained in Prepare/Enrich or the Customized Version, I encourage you to take advantage of the student priced workshop by attending this event."
