What is it worth to enrich your marriage and give your family greater stability for the future?
The creators of the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP) say:
“We are passionate about helping people attain healthy and satisfying relationships.”
PREP curricula is based on the latest, most stringent research and has been evaluated by many research teams in numerous countries. Studies show that couples who took PREP connected with each other in more positive ways, developed greater confidence in their relationships, and had a lower rate of divorce or break-up.
PREP is useful for:
- Married couples to enrich their relationship with greater stability and intimacy while learning how to develop their future together with greater confidence.
- Couples drifting apart or in conflict that want to return to a close, healthy marriage.
- Advanced marital preparation for couples who really want to develop the skills to thrive.
PREP can be used in a variety of formats from weekend retreats to multiple sessions over a period of time.
For couples willing to put in the effort and pay the price for individual attention, PREP can be used in face to face sessions over a six week period for intensive marital enrichment with weekly homework assignments.
PREP leaders do not teach in generalities. They present techniques such as the Speaker/Listener Technique, ground rules for problem solving and handling conflict, and how to identify danger signs of future problems in the relationship. The curricula also challenges core belief systems and expectations regarding forgiveness, commitment and how to enhance fun. It is a rigorously tested model for teaching couples how to communicate effectively, work as a team to solve problems, manage conflicts without damaging closeness, and preserve and enhance commitment and friendship.
PREP is used in many settings around the world, including community service settings, government programs, and religious institutions. PREP is listed in the U. S. Government’s SAMHSA National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
