PREPARE/ENRICH FACILITATOR

2021

More than 4,000,000 couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through taking the P/E assessment and working with a Certified Facilitator.  The assessment itself has been proven to improve relationship satisfaction; however there is something extraordinary about the relationship a Facilitator develops with a couple that truly helps the couple grow more than they would on their own.

P/E is one of the most widely researched assessment tools.  Professors and students at colleges and universities worldwide use the scales as a tool to conduct and evaluate their research.  P/E continues to adapt and react to the changing reality of relationships through continued research and development of assessments and resources.
