If you are a member of a polyamorous family, consider participating in Marco Lenzi’s research project on teens’ perceptions of family life. See his blurb below:
Hello, my name is Marco Lenzi and I am an Italian student of Clinical Psychology at Università Cattolica Del Sacro Cuore in Milan. I am conducting a project research about polyamory, and in particular investigating how boys and girls from 14 to 18 years old perceive quality of life and their relationships within their poly families. The research comprehends an interview face-to-face about life in poly family which will last no more than one hour. The project was approved by Professor of Sociology Elisabetta Carrà in Università Cattolica and I’ll furnish informed consent to the teenagers’ parents.
For further information, you can contact me at email@example.com.
Thanks for your attention.

In my new blog on Psychology Today I examine who children in poly families see as parents, how they decide, and what the kids call their parental figures.
With fabulous altsex folks like Cunning Minx, Franklin Veaux, Eve Rickert, and Marla Stewart, InfinityCon is coming to the Crowne Plaza Hotel near the Atlanta airport. I am thrilled to be presenting the keynote address Alternative Families, Cultural Influences, and Chosen Kinship at 5pm on Saturday, February 6. My other presentations are on Friday February 5, with Polyamorous Families with Children from 1 t0 1:50pm, and Boundaries for Leadership in Altsex Communities with Eve Rickert from 3 to 3:50. Also, I present Correcting Assumptions: Differentiating between BDSM and Intimate Partner Violence with Rachel Kieran on Saturday from 2 to 2:50.
Registration is open, so please join us for great conversations, the opportunity to learn new skills, and the chance to attend fun con events like the Black Tie Poly Prom, a pajama party movie night, and an evening with Taloolah Love and the Atlanta Speakeasy Electroswing.
