Where Therapists and Counselors Can Learn About Polyamory

“Several organizations have created informational whitepapers that detail best practices for serving CNM clients. In collaboration with the National Coalition of Sexual Freedom, psychologist Geri Weitzman and colleagues produced What Psychology Professionals Should Know About Polyamory, a free and incredibly useful short guide for anyone interested in counseling people in CNM relationships. Division 44 of the American Psychological Association created the Task Force on Consensual Non-Monogamy to help understand this growing trend in relationships, and the Task Force has been incredibly productive (In the interests of transparency, I must disclose that I am the co-chair of the Task Force Committee on Legal Issues). In addition to a plethora of published and ongoing studies, the Task Force is constructing a range of tools useful for therapists and counselors who serve folks in CNM relationships. Because the Task Force is producing so much great information, it will get its own blog here soon so watch this space for more information.”
