Therapy with consensually non-monogamous clients
MetadataShow full item record
This paper aims to provide a critical breakdown of the structure of monogamy in Western societies and provide therapists with information vital to supporting non-monogamous clients. Consensual non-monogamy (CNM) as a relationship style has increased in popularity over recent decades (Moors et al., 2017; Conley et al., 2018) and it is critical that the areas of relationship and family therapy stay current with emerging relationship structures. By not staying up to date with current relationship structures, therapists run the risk of promulgating harmful and oppressive attitudes within the therapy room, an effect all too familiar for the CNM community.
