Premarital counselingJulia's wedding


Most couples who attend premarital programs receive much needed general information on basic skills but often do not get specific training tailored to their unique needs. Dr. John & Claire Yzaguirre have developed a premarital program in which each couple meets with either Dr. John or Claire in five one-hour sessions to examine their level of functioning in key psychological skills necessary for a healthy marriage. Their answers to the following questionnaires designed by these authors provide a unique profile that leads to a skill-building program that meets their specific needs.


Couple's questionnaires:

  • Premarital Satisfaction Questionnaire
  • Empathy Skills Questionnaire
  • Stress Management Questionnaire
  • The House of Self
  • Toxic Thinking Inventory
  • Communication Skills Questionnaire
  • Conflict Resolution Skills Questionnaire
  • Forgiveness Skills Questionnaire
  • Overview of Relational Strengths and Growth Areas
