“In Polysecure Jessica Fern gave people a whole new language for healthily navigating nonmonogamy. Now, with The Polysecure Workbook, she is giving those readers practical tools to actively build their healthiest nonmonogamous relationships."—JoEllen Notte, author of The Monster Under the Bed: Sex, Depression, and the Conversations We Aren’t Having and In It Together: Navigating Depression with Partners, Friends, and Family
“Jessica Fern has outdone herself! In her ground-breaking book Polysecure, she provided terrific analysis and insights about how to create healthy and secure attachments in polyamorous relationships, expanding the field of attachment theory exponentially in the process. Now, with The Polysecure Workbook, she has given us dozens of great techniques and exercises, which may seem deceptively simple and user-friendly, but are very powerful and effective. Her foundational program is designed to help anyone in a consensually nonmonogamous relationship develop enough internal security to form secure attachments with multiple partners.”—Kathy Labriola, counselor, nurse, and author of The Polyamory Breakup Book
“The Polysecure Workbook is a one-of-a-kind tool for anyone looking to create more secure attachment within nonmonogamous (or monogamous) relationships. This ground-breaking book has helped to remove the stigma of polyamory as a pathology, making it more possible for people to explore nonmonogamy in a conscious way that strengthens their attachment style. The exercises are thoughtfully created to encourage deep reflection on your values, patterns and relationship structures to work towards healing your relationship with yourself and your partners. I loved going through it and questioning my beliefs and preconceptions around polyamory, it certainly expanded my view of nonconventional structures and how I can reflect on building security within my relationships.”—Annie Zimmerman, Your Pocket Therapist

A great addition to Polysecure! Honestly a great time to come out before the holidays as a nice little package set up. The workbook is amazing even if you’re even a little bit curious with poly life. The first chapter is so good for everyone to try, even if you aren’t interested in poly life. Would recommend if anyone is buying the book as a great resource.
Very helpful info and question prompts for all types of relationships. Attachment styles are fascinating, and most of these prompts can be used to unpack your own attachment styles and generational attachment trauma to better understand what you want/need from your primary romantic relationships, secondary romantic relationships, and even friendships,
