On Wednesday and Thursday, 14 and 15 May Andreas Bochmann led a very special PREPARE/ENRICH Advanced workshop in Neuenhagen near Berlin. The small but fine group of participants from the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland has been trained as PREPARE/ENRICH trainers. This was done through lectures, case supervision, brainstorming and exciting discussion.

The new trainers are:

    
Jurrien den Hollander, pastor and psychologist in the Netherlands
    
Martin Altink, pastor in the Netherlands

The two Dutchmen are among the "pioneers" for the introduction of PREPARE/ENRICH in the Netherlands and coordinate the team of translators for the Dutch language. The translation has been recently completed and is now awaiting review and is nearing release, so that soon the first training can be held in the Netherlands.

    
Dr. Daniel Pazanin, Pastor and psychological consultant from southern Germany
    
Laszlo Szabo, a university lecturer for church growth at
Friedensau Adventist University

The two new trainers from Germany have international roots and connections and can make a special contribution to the international community in Germany.

    
Daniel Zwiker, psychotherapist from Switzerland

We are particularly pleased about the enhancement of the training offer in Switzerland. Especially the Swiss are very active in the use of PREPARE/ENRICH and frequently request Supervision and training. With Daniel Zwiker it will also be possible to reach French-speaking Switzerland.

Despite a variety of opinions and methodological orientations all participants had a strong commitment to strengthening marriages
in common. Strengthening marriages and families is also a social challenge that we gladly face.
