Approximately five to ten percent of people in the United States engage in some form of consensual non-monogamy. Therapists are becoming increasingly aware of the need to treat members of non-monogamous relationships. Traditional systemic therapy training programs do not routinely address how to work with non-monogamous relationships and, to date, no evidence-based model of couple therapy has been applied to non-monogamous relationships. Therefore, this webinar will outline how the theoretical foundations and interventions of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) align with the tenets of non-monogamy and provide clinical examples of the use of EFT with non-monogamous relationships.
- Explain the unique characteristics of non-monogamous relationships.
- Apply the tenets and interventions of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to working with non-monogamous relationships.
