A persistent challenge with which clinicians must contend is the extreme scarcity of high-quality information regarding consensually-nonmonogamous relationships. Many assumptions and theories abound, but facts and reliable data are still rare. What types of studies do clinicians and psychotherapists feel is most important for researchers to be doing? What information is lacking? What information is most needed? What types of previous studies have proven to be particularly valuable? What questions still need to be asked and answered, and how can future studies be designed to answer them? This will be a panel discussion, which anyone in attendance with relevant experience is invited to participate.
