Jealousy: A Journey of Personal Growth

Jealousy is an emotion that can challenge anyone and sometimes can show up when we least expect it. Often we hear polyamory can’t/won’t work because humans are naturally jealous or jealousy will eventually ruin the relationship/s because if we “really” love someone we will be consumed by jealousy if they love or are close to another. Movies, songs and pop culture wouldn’t have the enormous drama impact without the love triangle fraught with possessiveness and jealousy. But is this true? Do we really have to fear and be devastated by jealousy which is just a form of emotional pain? In this webinar we will explore different types of jealousy, what we can learn from jealousy, tool to cope with our emotions and how to move through and even grow from our experience of jealousy.

Individuals were recruited through local and regional listserves, Loving More email list, the PolyResearchers list, the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality’s (IASHS) student and alumni lists, and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists’ (AASECT) AltSex list.
