Who uses the Prepare-Enrich couples’ programme?
Successful facilitators include:
- Church leaders and marriage support workers
- Members of marriage preparation teams
- Social and Health workers
- Couple and Family Counsellors, Therapists and Mediators
- Parenting Practitioners
The Prepare-Enrich programme has been designed and structured to make it relatively easy for facilitators without years of experience and knowledge to help provide effective support. Clearly it’s important to know your limits and be able to call in greater expertise when needed, so a team approach often works best.
How can I become a facilitator?
To be able to use Prepare-Enrich inventories, you need to attend a training workshop. These are arranged in various parts of the country, often in response to demand. For latest courses see here.
A typical facilitator training course is usually run in one day, or occasionally over a number of evenings. Using structured input and work in small groups, it prepares a facilitator to use the inventories and to deliver effective feedback to couples.
Ongoing support for existing facilitators
We like to keep in touch with facilitators and provide ongoing support through our UK office [link to Research and Newsletters], through facilitators’ events, newsletters and more informal contact.
If you have attended a training workshop in the past but not used the inventories recently, or you would like some help to start using the online Customized Version of the inventories, you may be interested in attending a workshop for a refresher session. Find out more here.
Equally if you are trained in the use of the Couple Inventory, and want to use the parenting or fostering/adoption options, do let us know and we will switch them on and send you some support information. Click here to contact us.
