Polyamory Curriculum

UUPA is pleased to announce the introduction of a curriculum on polyamory for congregations and religious professionals.

This curriculum was originally titled Love Makes a Family: Understanding and Welcoming People in Diverse Relationship Patterns into our UU Congregations

During General Assembly 2015, UUPA learned that the title Love Makes a Family: Portraits of LGBT People and their Families pre-dated UUPA's curriculum. After General Assembly, Mim Chapman, the author of UUPA's polyamory curriculum, contacted the Family Diversity Project to initiate a conversation about our overlapping titles.

In the interests of reducing confusion, UUPA will select a new title for the polyamory curriculum. The curriculum will be temporarily unavailable while UUPA completes revisions. To be notified when the curriculum again becomes available, email a notification request to uupa@uupa.org

About the curriculum

The polyamory curriculum is distributed on CD as a package together with its companion resource book, What Does Polyamory Look Like?, for those who agree to send UUPA a donation of $30.00. The companion book is available separately for a donation of $20.00.

To obtain your copy of the curriculum package or companion book, visit the online curriculum form, or contact UUPA to arrange an offline donation.

Mim Chapman, PhD authored this curriculum, designing it for congregations and religious professionals. The curriculum includes:
  • Leaders Packet
  • Set of images for use as handouts or posters
  • Handout Packet

What Does Polyamory Look Like? is a companion book that accompanies the curriculum as a resource to provide more comprehensive information about polyamory for curriculum leaders. This companion book is also authored by Mim Chapman, the author of the polyamory curriculum.

UUPA is interested in opportunities to field test the curriculum with congregations or leadership events. Contact the author, Mim Chapman, for more information about field testing.
