Scientist Dr. Eli Sheff Tackles Polyamory, Family, and Kink

in Practical NonMonogamy Workshop Tour


LOS ANGELES – Dr. Elisabeth “Eli” Sheff brings years of data and expertise on nonmonogamy and kink to her multicity workshop tour, Practical Nonmonogamy. Dr. Sheff’s goal is to present a comprehensive look at relationship diversity to help people make more informed relationship choices. Kicking off in Albuquerque on May 11, Practical NonMonogamy stops include Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Portland, Missoula, Minneapolis, Chicago, Atlanta, and Brooklyn.


“There is no single relationship style that works for everyone. There never was, really, and now relationship diversity is more prevalent than ever before,” says Dr. Sheff. “Learning about the options and choosing which style works best for your life now is only the beginning of the journey, and exploring the ways to sustain satisfying and resilient relationships can be an art.”

Workshop topics include: 1) Therapeutic Issues in Consensual Non-Monogamy, 2) Resilience in Polyamorous Families, 3) Distinguishing Between Intimate Partner Violence and BDSM, 4) Consent, Negotiations and Boundaries in Consensual Non-Monogamy, 5) Positive Polyamorous Parenting, 6) Predators in Our Midst, and 7) NonMonogamy Mismatch: When Someone Wants CNM and Someone Else Does Not.

“Learning about sex and gender diversity is important for any relationship counselor, therapist, or coach who hopes to serve clients from an informed position,” comments Dr. Sheff.

Dr. Sheff presents two streams of workshops: one for community members who want information and a chance to ask questions of an expert, and another for counselors and therapists who want continuing education credits. Community workshops include: Consent, Negotiations and Boundaries in Consensual Non-Monogamy; Positive Polyamorous Parenting; Predators in Our Midst; and NonMonogamy Mismatch: When Someone Wants CNM and Someone Else Does Not.  

The continuing education track is open to anyone who is interested and especially useful for counselors and therapists who want continuing education credits. The workshops are certified by the American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) and provide two or three hours of certified continuing education addressing a range of AltSex issues: therapeutic issues that face clients in consensual nonmonogamous (CNM) relationships, how to help clients negotiate boundaries and establish consent in their relationships, distinguishing between intimate partner violence and kinky sex, investigating the ways in which dealing with abuse in AltSex communities can help others with more conventional relationships, and exploring resilience in polyamorous and blended families.
