Guidelines for Supervising Marriage Mentor Couples: Research has demonstrated that a good premarital program can help a couple get their marriage off to a better start

All Marriage Mentor couples must be trained and directly supervised by a professional counsellor, lead couple or clergy member with solid experience in marriage education, certified in the PREPARE/ENRICH Program.

Supervisors are responsible for organising the training and supervision of the Marriage Mentors. In order to become a supervisor, the person/couple first needs to attend the two day PREPARE/ENRICH Workshop.

Supervisors should have the most recent version of the PREPARE/ENRICH: Customised Version Resource Kit. The supervisor is the point-person for the whole program, and their Facilitator ID Number will be used for scoring and ordering supplies from PREPARE/ENRICH. The supervisor should ensure that the Marriage Mentors are fully trained in how to effectively use the PREPARE/ENRICH Program with their couples. The supervisor should also be able to deal with problematic couples and/or to refer couples to a professional, such as a marriage and family therapist, when needed.

Marriage Mentor couples should have a supervisor that they can consult with anytime they have a question or concern about working with their couples. The Marriage Mentor couple should be taught to know their limits in working with other couples. This can occur when the Marriage Mentors are concerned about the information they are getting and/or are unclear how to help the couple deal with problematic issues such as depression, abuse or addiction.
