PREPARE / ENRICH - marriage preparation program

Relationships Australia Northern Territory’s ‘PREPARE / ENRICH Committed Couple Relationship Program’ assists couples at all stages of life to explore their relationship, to learn about themselves, their relationship strengths and areas of potential growth within a supportive and safe environment. PREPARE/ENRICH is a customised couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for pre-marital / pre-commitment preparation and for long term couple relationship enrichment. A specially trained Relationships Australia NT facilitator first meets with you both for a consultation then provides two feedback sessions, based on a your assessment results, during which the facilitator helps you as a couple to discuss and understand your results. This can help you to better understand yourselves, each other and your relationship. The facilitator may also share proven relationship skills with you to work on your potential relationship growth areas and increase relationship areas of strength. The PREPARE/ENRICH program can assist couples to: Identify personal and relationship strength and growth areas Explore elements of each of your personality traits Strengthen your communication skills Resolve conflicts between you and conflicts that you may face as a couple Reduce relationship stress Compare and better understand your family backgrounds Comfortably discuss financial issues Establish personal, couple, and family goals.
