Event description

Description

This workshop explores the ways in which our trauma histories can impact our ability to feel safe and secure in our polyamorous relationships. Going beyond jealousy as a framework, this workshop focuses on the importance of building safety and security, both internally and interpersonally. Polyamory can be an amazing opportunity to work on relationship skills, develop secure attachments, and deepen both our knowledge of and our ability to communicate about our desires, boundaries, and needs. Approaching polyamory from a trauma informed perspective has the potential to enrich both our polyamorous relationships and our trauma recovery.

“The facilitator was very comfortable and grounding. Focused on solutions, not problems. Learned so much! (4 different survival strategies.)”

“I liked the resources, info, contribution of participants, interpretation of contributions from participants, vulnerability of facilitator, containment of space & content – felt really safe.”

“Amazing content, good work on site, great handout to bring home and continue the work. Learned about the window of tolerance and response styles.”

“This workshop was incredible, can’t really encapsulate all the things I learned – hugely valuable.”

“Accessible info, dynamic facilitator, emphasis on compassion, honesty. Learned pragmatic grounding techniques & info on my own experiences.”

GENERAL INFO:

There are a few sliding scale spots available for low income people. Please email me at clementinemorrigan@gmail.com to inquire.

There are no refunds on ticket sales.

Please arrive on time or a little bit early! It's a lot to pack into two hours, and starting late will mean we may not cover everything.

Coop La Maison Verte has a ramp into the entrance, but the bathroom is not accessible.

This event takes place in Tiohtiá:ke, territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, and meeting place of many Indigenous peoples. We encourage partipants to think about the impacts of colonialism and how this shapes our thinking on love, relationships, and trauma.
