Multiple Securities: Navigating consensual non-monogamy and attachment

July 23, 2021, 6:00 – 8:00PM

$20 (CE credit available) for Professionals // Free for Students

Presented by Mo Deslandes, PsyD

While once thought to be exclusively monogamous, recent data suggests new attachment patterns and connections in varying relationships, including consensual non-monogamy.
