There are a growing number of social workers and adoption case workers who are integrating the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment into their adoption/foster interview process.
Goals of Using PREPARE/ENRICH
with Adopting/Fostering Couples
Modified adoption/foster content is based on feedback and input from consultants and agency directors, reflecting important relationship issues specific to adoption. Two existing scales, Personal Stress and Commitment, were modified slightly to include adoption/foster language. Additionally, three new scales were developed for couples preparing to adopt/foster:
The adoption/foster scales are automatically included when a facilitator selects this option as they register a couple for administration. Every couple completing the adoption/foster version of PREPARE/ENRICH also receives the core relationship categories. Because of the diverse nature of adoptions, the adoption/foster version of PREPARE/ENRICH makes no assumption about the marital status of a couple, presenting content relevant for a committed couple considering adoption/fostering.
This version is tailored made for couples to explore their spiritual beliefs as couples.
What is Webex?
A Webex meeting is an online meeting that allows you to virtually meet with other people, without leaving your home or office. In the case of a counseling session meeting, couples can virtually meet with the therapist via their laptop or desktop.
Webex meetings require a computer with Internet access and a separate phone line. By logging into the meeting via the Internet, you will be able to see the presenter's computer screen. By using audio and video controls or connecting to the therapist audio and video, you will be able to hear the presenter and the other participant. If by any chance that the couple cannot hear and understand the therapist's communication, the therapist will be able to switch to the chatroom feature of the meeting room.
Please allow yourself a few minutes to log into the Webex meeting as your computer will need time to automatically download the free Webex plug-in that will allow you to join the meeting.
Once clients set up an appointment at a appropriate time, the therapist will email the link to the chatroom in a discreet manner. The therapist will send a notification reminder of their appointment by email or phone.
