Happy Client Testimonial for Dr. Eli Sheff as Presenter

images.jpg

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.

Sincerely,

Natalie Elliott, LPC, LMFT

AREWE on March 12 More than Half Sold Out

The Alternative Relationship Education Workshop Event is less than two weeks away, and seats are going fast.

I will be joining a team of local mental health professionals to present a special CEU workshop for Counselors, Psychologists, and Social Workers interested in learning how to better support clients in alternative relationship styles.

Despite efforts to maintain non-judgmental attitudes, most mental health professionals know so little about this area that their responses to clients who “come out” to them can range from off-putting surprise to a disapproval that has anecdotally even done damage to clients, and created barriers to future treatment.  We hope to prevent these experiences by educating mental health professionals in the areas of sexual, gender and relational diversity – specifically alternative relationship structures, considerations of relational attraction, sexual identity, and gender expression.  Presenters have been selected from local professionals with experience in treating these populations, many with involvement and national exposure in the development of mental health standards in this area.

This workshop will have six classes and provide six CEUs to those who attend both the morning and the afternoon sessions. The morning session focuses on information, and will provide 3 CEUs. The afternoon session will cover the practical application of ethical practice with clients in alternative relationships and provides two Ethics CEUs and one general CEU. There will be a lunch break in the middle of the day with a catered lunch for all registered FULL DAY participants.

Please join us March 12th and share with any friends or colleagues who may be interested! For more information and to register, please visit  https://relationshipequalityfoundation.org/workshop-registration/
