Event Details

It’s difficult to talk about relationships these days without the topic of Attachment Styles coming up. 

The research on love and relationships consistently finds that understanding our attachment style can be an important part of creating healthy and fulfilling relationships, but how this applies to non-monogamous relationships can be unclear and even confusing.

Since the majority of the resources and advice on how to create securely attached romantic relationships rely heavily on mono-normative behaviors and hierarchical relationship structures, non-monogamous folks are often at a loss on how to create secure functioning with their multiple partners.


In this talk Jessica will present on:

– An overview of the different attachment styles.

– The potential attachment challenges that arise from opening up and the importance of being Polysecure.

– How jealousy can sometimes be a symptom of primal attachment panic or partners relating in insecure ways versus “your individual jealousy problem.”

– The different relationship skills for cultivating Secure Attachment with your partners and Secure Attachment with Self.
