Therapy-At-Home Workbooks® is a cost effective, do-it-yourself, therapist-guided alternative/addition to counseling. This line of workbooks were written by Lisa Brookes Kift, LMFT. Currently available are The Marriage Refresher Course and The Premarital Counseling Workbooks for couples. Individuals or couples may use her workbooks as a starting point before entering therapy. Therapists may also purchase her workbooks as a guideline in their own practices, or to use particular worksheets out of the workbooks for their clients. You can find Lisa at The Toolbox at LisaKiftTherapy.com – with helpful tools and articles for couples and their emotional well-being. Lisa has appeared in the media on a number of occasions and has been seen in CNN, Martha Stewart Weddings Mag and the Huffington Post. This "counseling alternative" series of workbooks for couples is not meant to replace traditional face-to-face therapy but rather offer people something in addition to face-to-face therapy.
The Couples Clinic is an organization dedicated to teaching successful principals which assist partners in engaging in an intimate relationship that works well for both parties.

In addition to the clinic itself, books and other tools have been developed around this approach and it has often been the topic of workshops, articles, and presentations centered on couples issues. The basis for this well researched approach to relationships stems from recognition that our brains over time develop predictable patterned responses to conflict in intimate relationships and by recognizing and changing those responses, a positive transformation of the relationship is possible.
