Prior to the first premarital session, couples will complete an online assessment. This will either be the Taylor Johnson Temperamental Analysis (TJTA) or the SYMBIS relational Road map assessment. The TJTA is a personality test designed to measure nine common personality traits for the assessment of individual and couple adjustment.
SYMBIS is a 15 page report that has information on each persons attitude toward marriage, their goals, personality dynamics, role expectations, strengths and weakness, relationship with in-laws, relational well being, communication patterns, how they handle conflict, money, sex, and spirituality
The first pre-marital session will focus on the completed online assessment and will include the interpretation and implications for the future relationship. In sessions two to four, couples are lead through an exciting journey which explores the following topics:
-Men and Women: Enjoying the Difference
-Emotional Bank Account and Love Bids
·Communication and Conflict Regulation
-Relational and Sexual Intimacy
-The Power of Life Dreams
-Other important research based topics
Cost per couple: $499.00
