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.
