About This Workshop
People who participate in consensual non-monogamy often cite that some of the biggest issues that they have within their relationships include allocation of time and resources, communication, and boundaries.  Does that sound like most relationships and families we work with?  Also, many people in consensual non-monogamous relationships find it particularly hard to find a practitioner to help them with these issues that has worked through perhaps some of their own biases as well as been trained in working with consensual non-monogamous relationships.  This introductory workshop will help to inform practitioners on this rapidly growing and unique population, help to becoming aware of any compulsory monogamy bias we might be bringing into the clinical setting, and help to create a more positive and helpful framework around consensual non-monogamy.
