Intimacy-Enhancing Couples' Intervention for Localized Prostate Cancer

The proposed study has two primary aims.
Aim 1: To evaluate the impact of an Intimacy-Enhancing Couples' intervention (IEC) versus a General Health and Wellness Intervention (GHW) and a Usual care control (UC) on patient and partner psychological and relationship outcomes.
Aim 1a.: To determine whether relationship length, pre-intervention relationship satisfaction, and men's pre-intervention masculinity moderate the effects of IEC on couples' psychological and relationship outcomes.
Aim 2: To evaluate whether IEC has an effect on couples' communication and intimacy when compared with GHW and UC and to determine whether changes in relationship communication and intimacy mediate changes in couples' psychological and relationship outcomes.
