PREP is an evidence-based programme developed in the United States at the University of Denver. It teaches couples communication and conflict-resolution skills to build a strong marital foundation and attain higher relationship satisfaction.

Overseas research shows that couples reported more positive interaction consistently up to 5 years after completion of the programme. Locally, our own preliminary studies show that couples who have attended PREP do better in areas of communication, relationship quality, emotional bonding and marital adjustment. Specifically, newlywed couples showed 10% improvement in communication skills scores within a year of attending the programme.

Our PREP workshop employs cognitive behavioural techniques to help with expectation management, supportive listening and speaking, problem-solving, as well as the maintenance of fun and friendship in the relationship.
