Enriching Your Relationship Program Through the Lens of Empirical Research
The Enriching Your Relationship with Yourself and Others (Enriching) program is an experiential and psycho-educational brief intervention program based on the skills of Virginia Satir which has been applied to a broad spectrum of populations. The premise of the program is that the skills that Satir used therapeutically could be modified and taught to the general public to enrich their lives. The skills include: Making Contact, Validating, Becoming Aware, Opening to Greater Understanding and Acceptance, Making Conscious Choices and Changes and Seeking and Giving Support. Although the Enriching program is being recognized around the world for its effectiveness by those receiving it, the empirical validation of the program has not been provided yet. Therefore, this is an initial attempt for a literature review of empirically based approaches and their connection to elements in the Enriching program.
