Polyamory and Open Relationships
Polyamory and open relationships are the practice of, or desire for, intimate relationships with more than one partner, with the consent of all parties involved. (Source)
Polyamorous/Open relationships have many stories, concerns, and quirks that differentiate from monogamous relationships, and as a relatively new (in the societal sense) form of intimate partnership, people often find themselves at a loss for helpful resources and supporting peers to discuss their journey of growth within their relationships.
This group is open format, meaning it runs continuously once a week with no beginning or end scheduled. There are a total of 10 spaces available in the group, and before joining the group new members will need to have a short consultation session (available via phone) with a therapist leading the group.
It is important to note that the intention of this group is to provide a safe and confidential space for processing relationship concerns, in combination with providing appropriate information and helpful techniques. In order to ensure privacy and open processing can occur, only one direct member of a poly relationship will be accepted into the group at a time.
This group meets every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:30 PM
North Central Austin near 183 (specific address provided via direct email)
$40 per session, with sliding scale available for individuals with financial limitations.
