Polyamory in the Clinical Encounter: An Introduction for Clinicians Who Are Curious And Concerned - Kieran (Kyra) Grosman, PsyD

Event Description:

Polyamorous relationships are becoming increasingly common, and talking about them tends to be activating. Whether you can understand why people would want to live and love that way, and/or feel like it could never work for you, you likely have curiosity and perhaps even strong feelings about it. 

Our goal is to become more consciously aware of and process some of those feelings in the service of being more available to and capable of helping our patients. We will do this by a short didactic section normalizing polyamory (an important take-away is that polyamory can and does work quite well for some people and it certainly isn't for everyone), to be followed by an experiential process where we can talk about our experiences with hearing about (or practicing) polyamory, reactions we have hearing about it, and how we would like to be able to handle future interactions. 

Bio: Kieran (Kyra) Grosman, Psy.D. is a psychologist in private practice in Park Slope. Since 2010 he has worked with individuals and couples, many of whom identify as LGBTQ/queer, poly, and/or kinky. Prior to that, he worked as a yoga teacher.
