There are two new research projects coming out of the powerhouse team associated with Division 44 of the American Psychological Association Task Force on NonMonogamy lead by Drs. Amy Moors and Heath Schechinger. Scholars are recruiting for two new studies aimed at understanding the experiences, well-being, and relationship dynamics of people engaged in consensually non-monogamous relationships during the pandemic.

Missing & Gratitude

The first study was designed by a graduate student, Ashley Ramos, and Dr. Amy Moors. This survey takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete, questions are related to relationship dynamics, missing a partner (for those who do not live with their partners), gratitude, and personal well-being. You can report on your relationships with up to five partners. Participation is anonymous. Our goal is to recruit 400 people engaged in consensual non-monogamy.

Personality & Outlook

The second study was designed by friends of the Task Force: Richard Slatcher and Rhonda Balzarini. This is a multi-part study; the first survey takes approximately 20-30 minutes. Future surveys will take 15-30 minutes. Questions are related to personality, relationship quality, and outlook on life. You can report on your relationships with up to two partners. Personal identifiers will remain confidential. Their goal is to recruit 150 people engaged in consensual non-monogamy.
