Prepare / Enrich Facilitator Training

22/12/2021 @ 9:00 am - 23/12/2021 @ 4:00 pm


Mandi Smith, Prepare/Enrich Facilitator

Fresh Hope is hosting PREPARE/ENRICH in 2022.

This training is targeted at our current Churches of Christ marriage celebrants** and is facilitated by Mandi Smith (pictured). PREPARE/ENRICH is the leading relationship assessment and skills-building program used nationally and internationally, built on a solid research foundation and proven to significantly improve a couple’s relationship. PREPARE/ENRICH is a relationship education and counselling tool which assesses a broad range of couple functioning dimensions. Taking couples through the program, along with the accompanying exercises, is an important step in helping couples have a better understanding of key influences on their relationship and how to build a strong and healthy marriage.

OPTION 1: Prepare / Enrich Core Training (Days 1 & 2: 10-11th Feb, 2022)

This two-day course covering all aspects of the PREPARE/ENRICH (PE) program to enable and accredit the Facilitator to use the material immediately. The training covers content and processes relevant to the following categories of PE:

  • Overview
  • Online Administration
  • Facilitator’s Report
  • Couple Typology
  • Satisfaction; Distortion; Relationship dynamics
  • Commitment; Abuse; Stress
  • Standard Report Pages
  • Couple & Family Maps
  • SCOPE Personality Profile

OPTION 2: Prepare / Enrich ‘Going Deeper’ Refresher Training (Day 2 only: 11th Feb, 2022)

This one-day course should be regarded as a follow-up day and includes skills training and practice opportunities for working with feedback techniques and workbook exercises. We also include the more challenging areas of working with Stepfamilies, Conflicted Couples, and Mature Age Couples. You will have the opportunity to look at and work through some case studies relating to these areas. You will also be introduced to other modules of PREPARE/ENRICH such as the Group Edition, Parenting, PE Checkup, and Couple Checkup.

*Please note, a minimum of 10 people are required to run both Options. If we do not reach the minimum, you will be notified two weeks prior to the training with a full reimbursement. This training runs from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, no accommodation or main meals are included. 

NB. If facilitators are unfamiliar with the online version of PE (called the Customised Version), it has been used in Australia since 2009 and we require trainees to attend the full training (2 days).
