Review

Beyond excellent! It is a rare book that so boldly advances the field. Martha provides thoughtful support for marginalized individuals while challenging unconscious biases and providing exceptional therapeutic tools for growth. Don’t miss reading this one.

-- Ellyn Bader, co-founder, The Couples Institute

Martha Kauppi has written the book for all therapists working with open relationships and polyamory. It is chock full of ideas for being poly or managing fluid relationship agreements, including how to have tough conversations and how to self-soothe. This author is masterful at helping people create change. These are skills that have been missing in the literature, until now. I can''t recommend this book enough.

-- Dr. Tammy Nelson, author of The New Monogamy: Redefining Relationships after Infidelity and Getting the Sex You Want: Shed Your Inhibitions and Reach New Heights of Passion Together

Polyamory is a book that should be on every sex and relationship therapist’s shelf. It is an indispensable and comprehensive guide to not only understanding polyamorous relationships, but also providing affirmative therapy for clients with diverse relationship structures. Casual readers looking to enhance their relationship skillset can also benefit from the book’s straightforward approach and practical exercises.

-- Justin J. Lehmiller, research fellow at the Kinsey Institute and author of the book Tell Me What You Want: The Science of Sexual Desire and How It Can Help You Improve Your Sex Life

Martha Kauppi has written a book on much more than polyamory. To be poly-informed, she skillfully teaches how one needs to understand other populations such as LGBTQIA, kink and fetish communities, and other erotic orientations. Her work is based on current research and recognizes clinicians’ need to be versed in understanding relationships focusing on differentiation. It is exhaustive and includes the nuances, complexities, and diversities that exist within the poly community. This book is destined to become a classic.

-- Joe Kort, author of “Is My Husband Gay, Straight or Bi"

In the tremendous new book Polyamory: A Clinical Toolkit for Therapists (and Their Clients) Martha Kauppi examines the clinical side of serving polyamorous clients in a mental healthcare setting. Using data from her own and others’ research, Kauppi provides a solid grounding in theory, explains the intersections between consensual nonmonogamy and kink/BDSM and LGBTQ+ populations, and takes on therapeutic bias and ways for therapists to look beyond CNM to other issues in the relationship. Kauppi offers clinicians tools to approach clients’ common issues such as forming agreements, managing jealousy, cheating, healing from past relationship trauma, and a mismatch in desire for CNM. Polyamory: A Clinical Toolkit for Therapists (and Their Clients) concludes with ethical and professional considerations, and a wealth of useful worksheets and handouts. The most comprehensive toolkit for therapists serving clients in consensually nonmonogamous relationships to date, Polyamory: A Clinical Toolkit for Therapists (and Their Clients) is required reading for culturally competent CNM mental health care provision.

-- Dr. Elisabeth Sheff, author of The Polyamorists Next Door, Stories from the Polycule, When Someone You Love is Polyamorous and Children in Polyamorous Families

This book feels like a long conversation with a good friend exploring all of the amazing possibilities on how to structure healthy relationships. Although it is focused on polyamory, it presents concepts that are beneficial to monogamous and non-monogamous relationships alike. It is a must read for anyone who wants a healthy intimate relationship.

The subtitle says this is a book for therapists. Yes, it is, but it''s also a marvelous guide to all the issues surrounding consensual nonmonogamy for anyone interested in open relationships. I especially recommend the chapter on jealousy. Not that the chapter will eliminate jealousy in poly relationships. It won''t. But it provides useful tools that can help minimize the toll jealousy takes on relationships.

Couples therapy with two partners can seem daunting enough, so how do you do relationship therapy when there are more than two? And how do you write about it in a clear and useful way? This is the challenge that Martha Kauppi took on and created an absolute gem in the process. It is based in Ellyn Bader and Pete Pearson’s Developmental Model of couples therapy (excellent). Even if you are “just” seeing couples or even individuals, this book presents an extremely insightful model to understand relationships and offers countless practical strategies to help clients get unstuck. Or if you are more of an end user who wants to work on yourself and your own relationship(s), it is accessible enough that you will get a lot out of it. The book is 450 pages and contains 100 pages of worksheets, so Martha means business when she says that she wants readers to walk away with practical tools to be able to do really good work. She offers a thorough explanation of the evolving landscape of consensual nonmonogamy so that readers can better understand all the variations that are out there, their benefits and challenges, and how to help clients figure out what would work best for them. Every page is infused with Martha’s caring wisdom. She is willing to challenge readers, clients, partners, and herself to bring out the best in each other. Polyamory may not be the right fit for every partner or therapist, but the countless relationship lessons in this book certainly are.

Three things I loved about this book:
1 - It''s written for counselors AND clients.
That means I got all the expertise a professional needs but in plain English. The language is that accessible.
2 - No I''m really not crazy!
Sometimes I think the ways I enjoy romance or sex are wrong. Kink, role play, same-sex, asexual relationships. This book lays it all out on the table with Z.E.R.O. judgment.
3 - This goes way beyond poly stuff.
Folks with two or more partners in the end need to learn a bunch of relationship skills. But this book will help anyone become more at ease in any relationship.

Martha Kauppi''s book is grounded a profoundly liberating premise: that regular people are capable of so much more love, joy and growth in relationships that our culture and society presumes. This book on polyamory invites us all to think beyond received wisdom about relationships and re-imagine what is possible. Without glossing over the very real challenges of polyamory, Kauppi offers elegant, substantive and highly practical tools and strategies that foster the development of self-knowledge, crystal-clear communication skills, mutual trust, generosity, compassion and openness. The therapeutic tools designed to grow these abilities offer potentially transformative benefits -- not only to polyamorous people, but to all of us mere mortals. I came away from reading this book buoyed in spirit. I keep it by my bedside, and have already used some of the many worksheets to help me "show up" in my relationships as the person I aspire to be.
