Exploring Ethical Non-Monogamy

Using a Gottman Method Approach


Dr. Christopher Scott

Brenna Ansley, LPC, LMFT Associate


This presentation is designed for mental health professionals who work with couples who are interested in exploring ethical non-monogamy. Presenters will review a structured intake protocol and workshop participants will learn to apply Gottman Method interventions to the presented case studies. 


    • Attendees will be able to describe two Gottman Method interventions designed to help previously monogamous couples explore nonmonogamy.

    • Attendees will be able to identify negative consequences of making agreements that cannot be sustained including “vetoing” new partners.

    • Identify client variables that need to be addressed prior to creating new relationship agreements around non-monogamy.
