REFOCCUS© Marriage Enrichment Inventor

The REFOCCUS© Marriage Enrichment Inventory is a packet of five questionnaires that a married couple can use and score by themselves, as part of a weekend retreat, or in five weekly evenings in which the general topical areas are discussed with other couples. REFOCCUS is ideal for married couples who wish to spend time and energy on their relationship, but desire a little direction and skill building assistance in doing so.

To get a sense of the REFOCCUS© Marriage Enrichment Inventory, view the 5 sample questions below taken randomly from the six questionnaires in the inventory.

Each partner answers separately:

Agree, Disagree or Uncertain

When finished, couples are encouraged to "go on a date" or spend time alone at home talking about the topics that sparked the most interest. Each member of the couple should pick two items (one area warranting celebration and one needing further discussion) to discuss at one time.
