Sorry for the delay, we have both been busy post graduation with starting a business, and working to obtain licensure.  These findings are part of a paper we hope to have published, and as we are in the process of revising it for publication we have not posted the whole paper.  However, we wanted everyone who follows this blog to get an idea of our findings.

study findings

Please feel free to contact us with any feedback or questions. We may not respond individually to each piece of feedback, but we will take it all into account in our paper revisions, and in future research.

Note: Please do not use our research findings without our permission! Feel free to send people to this blog for our findings, but do not reprint, repost, or use our research without our permission. Please.

And by the way, if you’re looking for a poly friendly therapist, you’re welcome to come visit us in Madison, Wisconsin. We have a website: MadisonEastsideFamilyTherapy.com

Welcome to Martha and Nick’s newly updated, longer and better polyamory study! We’re glad you are here.

In response to excellent feedback, we have updated and improved our study to include much more information. There are many advantages to this decision, including more nuanced data and many more options for what to include in our findings. We are very excited about it! The big disadvantage is that everyone who wants to participate in the study has to do the survey from the beginning, even if they completed the former survey. And it’s longer this time. Much longer. However, you can still come and go from it, so you don’t have to do it all in one sitting. We really appreciate your feedback and hope you will be willing to fill out our survey for the first time, or for the second time if you already did the original one.

Our intent is to study various aspects of polyamorous relationships in an effort to improve the quality of health and mental health care available to diverse populations.

This study has been approved by the Internal Review Board for Human Research at Edgewood College, and is partial fulfillment of graduation requirements from a Master’s degree program in Marriage and Family Therapy.

If you are currently in a polyamorous relationship, are 18 or older, and might be interested in participating in the study, click on the following link:

New Improved Polyamory Study

Please note: question 5 asks how long you have considered yourself to be polyamorous. If you do NOT identify as polyamorous, but are in a consensual open relationship, please feel free to put “0” in that field.

This link will give you access to the online survey. Participation in this survey is completely voluntary, and you can stop at any time. It is expected to take between 20 minutes and an hour depending on your relationship situation.

Whether or not you decide to participate in the study, you are welcome to return to this blog after January 1, 2012 for access to our results and final paper.

We will close access to the survey on October 15, 2011 in order to begin analyzing the results, so if you want to participate, make sure you have completed your survey by that date.

Feel free to share this website with anyone else you know who might be interested, and thank you so much!
