Marriage Preparation and Enrichment Programme

The course prepares couples for a healthy and enriching marriage and family life. It can assist soon-to-be married and married couples to lay the foundation for their marriage, gain valuable insights into individual strengths and weaknesses and learn practical skills on topics ranging from communication, conflict resolution, sexual intimacy, financial management, and building relationship with in-laws.

The course has elements of discussion, sharing and psycho-education. It can be discussed with the trainer for the format of the course to be more discussion based. Couples are welcome to bring up to the attention of the trainer relevant topics from the range offered, to be covered in depth.However, kindly note that the course is a discussion workshop and not a counselling session. The course offers an avenue to learn and explore with the trainer how to better prepare for marriage. There will be a report generated for the couple after they completed the Prepare/Enrich Inventory in the first session, and the report will help couple to understand each other and also help to serve as a point of discussion.

For further discussions of issues, Shan You Counselling Centre also offers counselling services, and one complementary counselling session will be provided after the course.
