Have ideas for future CEU presentations?

We're currently recruiting speakers to present at our monthly meetings this year. We're committed to finding passionate and knowledgeable speakers to offer educational talks on a wide variety of clinical topics that benefit the Austin AMFT Community.

Austin AMFT is particularly interested in presenting topics that are viewed through a systemic lens and that focus on how the work impacts the family system, community, or sociocultural spheres. Topics may be geared toward work with individuals, families or couples.

If you or someone you know might be a good fit, please submit a proposal below!

    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.


        Dr. Christopher Scott is a counseling psychologist in private practice in the Houston area. His practice focuses primarily on helping people improve their relationships and works with a diverse clientele. Dr. Scott became a Certified Gottman Therapist in 2019 and currently enrolled in the AASECT sex therapy certification program through the Sexual Health Alliance. Dr. Scott was licensed as a psychologist in North Carolina in 2007 (license retired) and in Texas since 2009.

        Brenna Ansley is a sex, trauma and relationship therapist based in the Austin area. Brenna is passionate about working with clients that are LGBTQ+, in more than monogamous relationships and practice alternative sexuality and lifestyles. She is currently working towards AASECT and EMDR certification.

        This presentation is designed to be useful for all levels of training and experience.
