"I just want to note, after giving so many lectures the past few months and being asked a lot about being a 'good poly person' - there isn't one - the points don't matter."
This week, Laura sits down with Jessica Fern, author of Polysecure , to discuss attachment theory, trauma, and secure relating in polyamorous networks. Their conversation roams across the book and the topic. If you aren't at all familiar with attachment theory, there's a post on the Ready for Polyamory blog with more information to help clarify the concepts: www.readyforpolyamory.com/post/why-attachment , and if you're intrigued and want to read PolySecure you can find links to the book that support Jessica here https://thorntreepress.com/polysecure/.
Jessica's mailing list with information on various free workshops and lectures can be subscribed to at https://jessicafern.com, and she also posts paid events she's hired for there.
