Description


The More the Merrier? Understanding Consensual Non Monogamy in our Work with Clients

Clinicians will gain a basic understanding of polyamory and learn key issues to be mindful of when working with individuals and couples exploring alternatives to monogamy. Through discussion and case studies, this training will challenge our culturally based assumptions about monogamy and ask how these biases impact the way we practice therapy.

This training will highlight specific ways therapists can help individuals and couples who are considering or choosing consensual non monogamy. Participants should come prepared to learn ways of feeling more confident and comfortable during client conversations, exploring questions such as, “Is more really merrier and for whom?” “What does a polyamorous partnership look like and how can it work?” “What should the main considerations be?” as well as other related discussion questions around managing jealousy, communication issues of honesty & disclosure and negotiating agreements, boundaries & rules. Unique challenges to responsible multi-partnering will be discussed as well as what consensual non monogamous clients require in therapy.
