Briefly tell me just what ePREP is and what people get out of it?
ePREP is an online program that is self-paced and can be done at any time in the privacy of your own home. It can be taken in one to three hours depending on the time you want to spend on each concept. You will be able to stop the program and return later when you have the time to continue. Your purchase is good for six months.There are 7 units in the couples version and 8 units in the singles version. Both versions include written information as well as video examples and tutorials that will help you to recognize and combat dynamic risk factors that often lead to relationship distress. Specifically, ePREP teaches communication techniques and problem-solving skills that help couples to effectively deal with conflict. It also teaches couples how to enhance positive aspects of their relationship by fostering fun and friendship.
You show that ePREP is available in two versions – couples or singles.
Which version should I take?
You are right. There are two versions of ePREP.
The Couple's version is designed for those who are currently in a committed romantic relationship and want to improve that relationship (with or without their partner going through it at the same time)
The Single's version is for those who are dating or single, not necessarily in a committed relationship and looking for better ways to communicate in their present or future relationships.
Either version can be given as a gift.
Is ePREP only for people whose relationships have hit a wall
If you are in a committed relationship, "ePREP - Couples" can help you to improve your relationship whether you and your partner have hit a low point and are struggling or if you are doing well and just want to better protect a relationship that is a major source of joy in your life.
If you are dating but not in a serious committed relationship, "ePREP - Singles" can help you to date with your head and your heart more aligned.
If you are not dating right now, it can help you learn how to ready yourself to attract the right person and attract a healthy relationship.
Why Should I Listen to You?
1. ePREP is based on the PREP Approach
The doctors behind this curriculum (Drs Markman, Stanley, Rhoades, Braithwaite and Fincham) have more scientific papers in relationship theory and relationship research than any other curriculum team today. In fact, if you look for the evidence-basis behind many relationship resources, you will find the PREP name. That is simply because several resources out there use PREP research in their materials. While there are many other very valuable learning tools that could help you improve your relationship, we are confident that we are the most credible source.
2. The experience itself is empowering
When you sit down to go through "ePREP" you become the driver of the experience. You will be running through the pages of information yourself, on your own timeframe, where and when you decide and you won't have someone talking down to you. The information is presented in a very straight-forward way. And you won't feel like a guinea pig because we've already had hundreds of couples run through a scientific study with this material and the experience of ePREP helped them to improve their relationship.
Here are the citations for the published scientific studies. .
What should I look for in a relationship education program like ePREP?
There are several resources out there that can help you lead a successful romantic life. But not all of them should be trusted. Some programs might actually do more harm than good for you and your relationships.

Look for programs that are evidence-based. One way you can tell that something is evidence-based is to look for the scientific citations that accompany the program.
