Whether we’re looking to better connect with family, friends, or coworkers, we can take tips from both couples counseling sessions and from the polyamory community to build and sustain healthy relationships.

Event attendees will learn how to use conflict to deepen relationships through a team-based approach to resolution, as well as how to integrate the practices of sex therapists and the polyamory community into any relationship.
