Abstract

Polyamory is a term used to describe when individuals pursue multiple concurrent romantic relationships with the permission of their partners. Polyamory is an underrecognized and underresearched area of interest in the mental health field. Therefore, little guidance is available on best practice for couple and sex therapy interventions. The present article explores a case study involving the successful implementation of sensate focus therapy with a polyamorous couple. The unique issues that arose while performing sex therapy with a couple in this type of coupling were explored to provide clinicians with recommendations for practice.
