In Empowering Couples
, the authors want you to learn what happy couples are doing and what their strengths are. Information is based on results from couples who took the ENRICH couple inventory as part of the PREPARE/ENRICH Program.
Each chapter begins with a “couple quiz” about a specific relationship topic. Each quiz has individual scoring procedures that enable you to obtain insight into your relationship. At the end of each chapter are couple exercises, which build on the couple quizzes and focus on components found to be important for happy marriages.
