APA launches task force to reduce stigma of 'ethical' polyamorous relationships
Washington D.C., Jul 11, 2019 / 02:57 am (CNA).- People who practice consensual polygamy are the focus of a special task force recently launched by the American Psychological Association, which said it is seeking to reduce the “stigmatization” of the “marginalized” group.
“Finding love and/or sexual intimacy is a central part of most people’s life experience,” the task force said in a statement.
“However, the ability to engage in desired intimacy without social and medical stigmatization is not a liberty for all. This task force seeks to address the needs of people who practice consensual non-monogamy, including their intersecting marginalized identities.”
