Home groups or small groups in other venues (your local library or church, etc.) are an excellent way to build support and give time and attention to your most important relationship—your marriage.
An out-of-the-box 8-part DVD class, called The Marriage Course, you can host in your own home, church, library or school.
Whether you are looking to help others or want the resources to help your own marriage, PREPARE/ENRICH has an online diagnostic "Couple Checkup," as well as an entertaining DVD course with workbook and leader's guide called "Prepare to Last" for the "nearlywed" or newlywed. They also provide mentor training and curricula for youth. Learn more at www.prepare-enrich.com
PREP Couples Workshops: PREP and Christian PREP Couple Workshops are among the most comprehensive and well respected curricula—typically 6 to 12 hour classes. The class may be conducted all on one day (such as a Saturday Workshop) or it may be offered over a period of weeks, such as 6 Thursday nights for 2 hours each. There can be one or more leaders and a number of couples in the group. You will have private practice time. There is NO sharing of personal problems with the group. PREP Workshops are designed to be fun and educational, they are NOT therapy sessions. To date PREP has trained 14,748 individuals to become PREP Leaders in 28 countries and easy to locate a PREP trained leader in your area at www.prepinc.com
