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.
