Ethical Non-Monogamy for Therapists

Therapeutic Diversity Training

Location: Online (self-directed with a live video component)

Presenters: Cherish Dorrington, RTC, MTC & Cora Bilsker, RSW

You may have been hearing terms like polyamory, swinging and relationship anarchy, in your office or in the media, leaving you with questions about how to best assist your clients in navigating these kinds of relationship dynamics. This course will give you increased confidence and understanding to support your clients through their relationship journeys, even as you familiarize yourself with this societal shift. All this, while exploring both cultural and personal bias, so that you are in awareness throughout the process.
Whether we believe in the concept of a counsellor being an expert or not, our clients see us as knowledgeable, and the way in which we demonstrate understanding of their experience can have a massive impact on their personal self concept.
