Polyamory and Other Open Relationship Styles

Presented by Taryn Carwyn


Polyamory is one of the fastest growing lifestyles in the United States.  It is important to be able to understand the different dynamics that can come into play when working with this diverse population.  Taryn Carwyn will utilize her extensive experience in private practice and as a leader in the polyamory community to help understand the language and specific concerns that can arrive when working with this community.  Polyamory and various open relationship styles can look a variety of ways, and each has their own important language and boundaries to consider and how it can come into play in individual, relationship, and family counseling.
