One of the first steps to providing culturally competent care is amending client-history and intake forms to assure that they are inclusive toward marginalized populations. An increasing number of mental and medical health centers are taking steps to be inclusive of relationship structure diversity.

Living Outside Protocol: Polyamorous Orientations, Bodies, and Queer Temporalities
What the experiences of nonmonogamous couples can tell us about jealousy, love, desire and trust. Zaeli Kane and Joe Spurr. By Susan Dominus. W hen Daniel and Elizabeth married in , they found it was easy enough to choose a ring for her, but there were far fewer choices for him. Daniel, then a year-old who worked in information technology, decided to design one himself, requesting that tiny stones be placed in a gold band, like planets orbiting in a solar system.
Previous research suggests that both monogamous and consensually non-monogamous CNM participants rate monogamous targets more positively. In the current research, we sought to re-examine the halo effect, using a more direct measure of stigma i. Congruent with prior findings, CNM participants favored monogamous targets over CNM targets as a broad category replicating the halo effect. However, results indicated this effect dissipated when participants were asked to differentiate between relationships they identify with, and other CNM relationships. Furthermore, supplementary findings suggest that monogamous targets were perceived to be the least promiscuous and were associated with the lowest perceived sexually transmitted infection STI rates, while swinger targets were perceived as the most promiscuous and were associated with the highest perceived STI rates. Consequently, our results imply social distance is partly attributable to the perception of STI risk, but not perceptions of promiscuity.
This study investigates experiences of polyamory in a society where monogamy is the norm. The relationships are known to those involved, and everyone has the opportunity to have multiple relationships at the same time. In-depth interviews were completed with 22 persons in Sweden who identify as polyamorous. And what consequences are the informants exposed to when heteronormative expectations are not followed? Going beyond these monogamous heteronormative lines can result in more relational choices by which one has to find out what kind of relationship works best instead of following a ready-made template. The majority of the informants feel forced to conceal their relationship constellations in several situations and contexts.

The term "monogamy" may be referring to one of various relational types, depending upon context. Generally, there are four overlapping definitions. For instance, biologists, biological anthropologists , and behavioral ecologists often use monogamy in the sense of sexual, if not genetic reproductive , exclusivity. According to the Ethnographic Atlas by George P. Murdock, of 1, societies from around the world noted, were monogamous; had occasional polygyny; had more frequent polygyny; and 4 had polyandry. Divorce and remarriage can thus result in "serial monogamy", i. This can be interpreted as a form of plural mating, as are those societies dominated by female-headed families in the Caribbean , Mauritius and Brazil where there is frequent rotation of unmarried partners.

View CV. I am a social psychologist studying the interpersonal processes that enhance and detract from the quality of romantic and sexual relationships. My recent research focuses on how diverse couples can have satisfying and passionate relationships and successfully navigate challenges during times of conflict or distress. In my work, I take multiple theoretical and methodological approaches, drawing on perspectives such as interdependence theory, ideal standards, communal motivation, stigma management, and evolutionary theory to better understand how couples can maintain satisfying relationships overtime. I am also committed to implementing open science practices in my research through making all of my research materials available since see the Open Science Framework for more information , and I am dedicated to conducting research that is reproducible and replicable through conducting high-powered studies and crowdsourcing data across labs when collecting data from hard-to-reach populations.

Сьюзан остановилась, собираясь с духом. Звук выстрела продолжал звучать у нее в голове. Горячий пар пробивался через люк подобно вулканическим газам, предшествующим извержению. Проклиная себя за то, что не забрала у Стратмора беретту, она пыталась вспомнить, где осталось оружие - у него или же в Третьем узле. Когда глаза Сьюзан немного привыкли к темноте, она посмотрела на дыру, зияющую в стеклянной стене.
Это ей снится. Трудно было даже пошевельнуться: события вчерашнего дня вычерпали все ее силы без остатка. - Дэвид… - тихо простонала. Ответа не последовало. Она открыла глаза, не в состоянии даже протянуть руку.
