Polyamory is in the news, in the movies, and in the therapy room. As media attention for this open relationship style grows, more and more people are giving it a try. In this webinar, Martha will provide an introduction to polyamory from a therapist's perspective, including explaining why she loves working with this population and thinks you will too. You will learn how challenges specific to polyamory present in therapy, and how to handle them with skill. There will be ample time for Q and A, so you can get the specific information you need in order to feel confident working with polyamorous clients in your practice.
