Over the years I have spoken to the AASECT community of educators, counselors, and therapists in Atlanta several times. Their delightful local leader Natalie Elliot of the Atlanta Counseling Institute has written me a letter of recommendation, see below.
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to enthusiastically endorse Dr. Eli Sheff. She is an amazing facilitator and presenter. She has provided at least 2 trainings for our professional community. Each time she was informative, engaging, and funny. She brings a wealth of information regarding the polyamorous world and delivers it in way in which anyone can understand and implement into practice.
Dr. Sheff has proven herself as a leader in the field of researching and understanding polyamorous relationships, their lifestyles, and the impact on children of the poly families. We turn to her and her research for data on the poly community.
Again, I strongly recommend Dr. Sheff for all endeavors.

When Your Partner Wants Non-Monogamy and You Don’t: A Workshop for People with a (Non)Monogamy Mismatch
⏲ Tuesday September 19 2017 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Get tickets here
What do you do when you love someone and they want something very different from you? That conundrum can be very difficult when it comes to polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy because it can be very difficult to compromise on sexual and emotional exclusivity. In her 20+ years researching polyamorous families, Dr. Eli Sheff has seen many people deal with this sticky issue and faced it in her own life. Now she has designed a workshop with a combination of lecture, discussion, and exercises to help.
Who Should Come:
People who are already in relationships and struggling with a mismatch in desire for Consensual Non-Monogamy – someone wants an open/CNM relationship and someone else does not.
- Types of Consensual Non-Monogamy
- Arguments for CNM
- Arguments against CNM
- The difficulties of compromising on CNM
- Mono/Poly or Poly/Mono
- Considering boundaries: What do you want? What can you tolerate?
- Meeting of the minds (and other parts)
- Going separate ways
Participants can expect to take away a greater understanding of the options for CNM and increased clarity on their own needs and boundaries.
