The transition to parenthood for couples is a time of great excitement however the challenges and demands can lead to a decline in marital satisfaction. Couples can lose sight of their potential as their new roles take their relationship on a path they may not have experienced yet. This can be particularly complex for blended families.
The PREPARE/ENRICH Parenting Version is a relationship inventory which helps couples gain some awareness in how they are going as a couple as well as giving them insight into how they view their relationship with their children. The program guides couples through the challenges of parenting and the intersection of marital and parental dynamics, raising awareness and building relationship skills. It empowers parents providing them with insight into their parenting style, family system, and couple relationship. This workshop will give some practical tips on working with couples whose primary concerns are parenting, using the PREPARE/ENRICH Parenting module.
