More than 4,000,000 couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through taking the P/E assessment and working with a Certified Facilitator. The assessment itself has been proven to improve relationship satisfaction; however there is something extraordinary about the relationship a Facilitator develops with a couple that truly helps the couple grow more than they would on their own.
Our Proven Tool
P/E is one of the most widely researched assessment tools. Professors and students at colleges and universities worldwide use the scales as a tool to conduct and evaluate their research. P/E continues to adapt and react to the changing reality of relationships through continued research and development of assessments and resources.
A Global Community
Dr. David Olson, family science pioneer, and his wife, Karen Olson, founded P/E in 1980 after Dr. Olson connected theory and practice. Dr. Olson developed a method that provided counselors and clergy a framework to use with couples. Today, P/E is powered by a dedicated staff based in Roseville, Minnesota as well as a vast network that spans across the world. The P/E family is over 100,000 Certified Facilitators strong and growing every day.
