Description

POLYAMORY? (not polygamy)

Understanding the rise of these relationship models, raising awareness, challenging myths/stereotypes and facilitating disclosure in the therapy room.


Clients can fear judgement or lack of understanding when disclosing their diverse relationship model in therapy. You can support them by updating your knowledge, and thereby reduce the risk of derailing the therapeutic work or inadvertantly adding to a client's socially inflicted feelings of shame.


An affordable 1/2 day 'basics' CPD for counsellors, psychotherapists and other well-being professionals on ethical non-monogamy. Suitable for anyone working with couples or individuals on the subject of relationships.

£25. (tickets available are £10 deposit to reserve a place, and £15 balance, which will be requested nearer the date)

Saturday FEB 29th 2020 10am – 1.30 pm.

In this 'basics' session, we will be exploring:

  • The assumptions around monogamy

  • The pressures of mono-normative social scripts

  • Models of ethical consensual non-monogamy

  • Theoretical frames for viewing these relationship models

  • Understandings around the rise of these relationship models

  • Why people might choose ethical non-monogamy

  • Key challenges for people who practice polyamory

  • Potential for our own inherent bias

Also considering:

Myth & stereotypes (what it is, what it isn’t)

Sharing best practice (in removing barriers to therapy for people who practice diverse relationship models)

Signposting to further resources for clients and professionals


Facilitated by Tina Hill-Art Reg MBACP
