Communication Strategies for Navigating Jealousy
Chicago Non-Monogamy Conference
Abstract: Romantic and sexual jealousy are hot topics in discussions of polyamorous and other kinds of non-monogamous relationship setups, and the experience of jealousy varies greatly across people. This skill-share workshop will examine what jealousy actually looks like, and provide an opportunity to explore what is underneath the experience of jealousy. Audience members will have the opportunity to share the strategies they use to explore and communicate with others about their experiences of jealousy, and spend time considering what types of communication they value in the relationships they cultivate with others. Optional exercises and practice opportunities will be provided.
