Strategies for Managing Jealousy

Drawing on years of interviews and participant observation, Eli identifies common triggers for jealousy in monogamish and open relationships, some reasons polyamorous people seem to welcome them, and what happens when jealousy becomes difficult to manage. Sheff closes with strategies that have worked to manage jealousy, as well as some that fail.

There will be time for questions and discussion after each talk.
