Join us in March for SOPP's next CE workshop: "Clinical Practice with Consensually Non-monogamous Clients: Integrating Emerging Research with Cultural Humility"

SOPP associate professor, Michelle Vaughan, Ph.D., discusses how evidence suggests that CNM individuals (e.g., people engaging in polyamory, swinging, or other open relationships) are highly stigmatized and often report harmful and stigmatizing experience in therapy, while few psychologists receive training on CNM individuals or their relationship. This training utilizes the framework of cultural humility to address common myths and stereotypes about CNM people & their relationships and provides key recommendations and considerations in providing CNM-inclusive and affirming therapy services.


  1. Define and differentiate between polyamory, swinging, and open relationships.
  2. Identify at least two findings of research on consensually non-monogamous (CNM) relationships.
  3. Identify at least two unique needs or experiences of consensually non-monogamous individuals relevant to therapy.
