Course Description: 

APA Division 44’s Consensual Non‑Monogamy Taskforce has produced documentation for therapists and patients. Their research finds that patients who identify as engaging in consensual nonmonogamy and polyamory often experience discrimination in therapy. This training will help therapists recognize their own biases in working with these individuals and provide guidelines for working inclusively as allies with this population, which studies estimate encapsulate between 4 and 22% of American adults.
