A Therapists Guide to Consensual Nonmonogamy

Rhea Orion, PhD, LMFT, CST, Private Practice, Napa, CA

Millions practice Consensual NonMonogamy (CNM), many within families, and many seek therapy. In this session you will explore  clinical misconceptions about CNM as the presenter uses  research to answer questions such as: What differentiates CNM relationship types? Is CNM healthy and safe? Why do people want multiple partners? What impact might this have on the welfare of children? Explore these questions and discuss  CNM agreements, boundaries, jealousy, sex, health, time, and family issues that should be considered.

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define three types of CNM relationship formats in detail including who is in CNM and why
  • Assess issues unique to CNM clients (who will more likely disclose their CNM relations to a friendly, knowledgable clinician)
  • Apply expanded clinical skills and tools to at least six CNM individual, partner, and family problems-many also prevalent in non-CNM clients
