Presented By: Dr. Karin Wandrei, LCSW
Within the past few years we have seen more visibility of open relationships. Within our profession monogamy has been the norm. Open relationships can be a viable option for some people. Using lecture, video and musical selections, this workshop will provide an overview of open relationships, including common myths, research, what it takes to be successful in an open relationship, and common issues that people in open relationships may bring to therapy including jealousy, children, and sex.
Learning Objectives - After completion of the presentation the attendees will:
1. Define and describe different kinds of open relationships.
2. Describe common clinical issues presented by people in open relationships.
3. Know where to find additional resources for clients and themselves.
