Polyamory: Therapeutic challenges, confrontations, and solutions
In this 90-minute course, originally a webinar produced by the Couples Institute, you’ll learn how to approach some of the most common challenges people in polyamorous relationships face…as well as how to avoid common mistakes therapists make that push their polyam clients away.
- What polyamorous clients are looking for in a therapist
- How to help clients when one partner wants to open up and the other doesn’t (the answer isn’t what you think!)
- How to help your polyamorous clients build a secure connection, and hold steady through challenging negotiations
- How to help your clients recover from ‘polyamory gone amiss’
- Why polyamorous clients can be your best clients ever
Plus, I’ll cover…
- Time-tested strategies for helping clients feel grounded even when their partner is in bed with someone else (it’s possible!)
- A theory on why polyamory makes sense and who can benefit from it
- Who I want to see at the first visit, and why
- And much more!
What You’ll Receive:
- A 90 minute recorded presentation on working with polyamorous clients in therapy
- The presentation slides
- My extensive bibliography with resources for learning more
- 1.5 CEUs approved by American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT)*
- Free bonus article: Working with jealousy is the #1 skillset you need to be effective with polyamorous clients. That’s why I’m offering, along with this course, a bonus article about how to tackle jealousy, envy, and other uncomfortable emotions. You’ll learn strategies for building self-regulation around jealousy and unravelling the complex layers of narrative that create jealousy in the first place.
