Description of Learning Type CE Event: Relationships are ever-changing, with more and more people choosing to define their relationships out of what we’ve been taught are “societal norms.” Polyamorism and non-monogamy have been around for centuries, with communities and individuals embracing the beauty of compersion. Together, we will learn what compersion is and how it can be achieved through behavior-analytic practices, all while decreasing occurrences of jealousy.

Disclaimer: Always remember that taking a CEU, even a multi-hour CEU is NOT enough to demonstrate competency in the content related to the CEU. It is YOUR responsibility to seek out supervision/consultation with the presenter and/or a subject matter expert (SME). The CBS/CBS-C certification is a SUB-field certification designed for the sub-field of SBA it does NOT lead to licensure of its own. Thus to practice with this certification, you’d have to be a BCBA® or BCaBA® via the BACB® and/or certified in your particular state as a Licensed Behavior Analyst.
