Choice Words: Ethical Non-Monogamy 101

January 26th, 2022 | 7 p.m. | FREE

Ethical non-monogamy (ENM) is the practice of engaging in relationships that are not completely exclusive between two people. ENM can present in relationships in many different ways including polyamory and open relationships. What matters most is that everyone involved gives their consent what is happening. ENM is free from coercion, deception, or guilt-tripping. We will be joined by Curt Harris, LPC to discuss Ethical Non-Monogamy, you won't want to miss it!

Monogamy is not the default: Providing affirming care for people who practice ENM

Feb. 14th | 1 p.m. | $29

There's a future in which monogamy does not remain the default status for relationships and healthcare providers are often unprepared. This session will convey a foundational understanding of ethical non monogamy (ENM) as well as the frequent barriers faced by individuals who practice ENM. Our educator examines common healthcare and personal experiences of stigma from individuals who engage in ENM to inform better holistic practices of providers. Participants will be challenged to distinguish between perceived versus actual risks and receive practical action steps to implement care that affirms sexualities and reduces the potential of stigmatizing experiences.
