Evidence-Based Skills and Insights

Prior to meeting with a JSSA mental health professional, couples complete separate online assessments customized to their relationship stage. Thriving Together uses Prepare/Enrich, an assessment and educational framework backed by more than 35 years of research.

The results from the assessment inform the relationship skills taught over the course of six (6) one-hour sessions. In addition to the core Thriving Together curriculum, couples can choose one (1) supplement topic of choice:

  • Financial management
  • Hobbies
  • Physical intimacy
  • Relationship roles
  • Spiritual beliefs
  • Parenting

Whether you just moved in together, are considering marriage or you are in the middle of planning a wedding, Thriving Together can teach you and your loved one the skills necessary to build, renew, or restore your relationship. To learn more, please contact Kirsten Sidell at 301-610-8328 or
