    I think this book has a lot of good things about it. except for the first chapter The author should probably stick to working with jealousy and not helping people decide if an open relationship is for them or not I think a lot of invalid assumptions are made in that chapter about certain things that are necessarily lost when someone gets into an open relationship, like being able to feel secure with your partner I think with healthy individuals who get some experience under their belt, I think this book has a lot of good things about it. except for the first chapter The author should probably stick to working with jealousy and not helping people decide if an open relationship is for them or not I think a lot of invalid assumptions are made in that chapter about certain things that are necessarily lost when someone gets into an open relationship, like being able to feel secure with your partner I think with healthy individuals who get some experience under their belt, then there can be plenty of security even with multiple partners Otherwise, this book was great Lots of good advice and different strategies for tackling and understanding jealousy and what can cause it I m not much of one to struggle with jealousy myself, but it is good to know I have this resource if I ever need it or ever do struggle with jealousy I would very likely recommend this book to anyone in an open relationship that thinks jealousy is or will be a problem for them

    The Jealousy Workbook is a textbook style book, with few typos and a slick interior design with easy to read type It has many pages that could be photocopied by counselors for use by clients during sessions All exercises can be done by couples and additional partners or only an individual if necessary This book is mostly designed for those who have already decided on a poly relationship model and just need a little or a lot of help implementing the process This book was organized amazingl The Jealousy Workbook is a textbook style book, with few typos and a slick interior design with easy to read type It has many pages that could be photocopied by counselors for use by clients during sessions All exercises can be done by couples and additional partners or only an individual if necessary This book is mostly designed for those who have already decided on a poly relationship model and just need a little or a lot of help implementing the process This book was organized amazingly well, but I do believe that terms should have been defined as soon as they appeared, especially when initially Labriola uses words like jealousy and envy interchangeably I felt confident that Labriola was experienced and knowledgeable as a counselor and with her genuinely poly personal life Many of the exercises could be incredibly useful, especially Chapter 11 s section on modifying core beliefs I do wish that Labriola and her publisher had made a token monogamist review the book before printing The point of view of the author led to a few alienating and ridiculous statements like, Most people find that the gains in the pros column outweigh the losses in the cons side, convincing them that having an open relationship will make them happier than continuing in a monogamous relationship p15 I could let this slide since the book seems to be aimed towards those already in open relationships, but the above statement was in a chapter on grieving the loss of a monogamous relationship, so it seems rather insensitive Also, chapter 1 is all about determining whether a poly relationship is right for you, which was evaluated through a number of quizzes Unfortunately, those quizzes were rigged with questions that always result in a positive answer at least SOMETIMES by somebody with a healthy relationship Example Did you wantromance and excitement in your relationship Did you sometimes feel that there was some important component missing from the relationship Do you enjoy the security and stability of a monogamous relationship but also long forromance and passion Have you generally succeeded in keeping agreements you have made with your partner Have you generally made good choices in picking emotionally healthy partners Generally, this chapter comes off as manipulative and disingenuous, so I think it could do with deletion in future editions to narrow the scope to people who have already decided on the lifestyle Onecriticism I have may be a personal ideological difference in opinion She seems to be a great proponent of Freud, not just in Chapter 5 s giant Freud love in I found the constant insistence to reach back into childhood for experiences to blame to be troubling People reading this book do not need help alienating themselves from the only support system and relationships they might feel is stable during this time family Overall, however, this book was filled with many other terrific exercises and thoughts The final chapter included many other points of view from prominent authors, which allowed a differentiated experience for those who may have struggled with previous exercises I will heartily recommend this book to clients of mine who are struggling with jealousy in their open relationships if they are already secure in their decision to become poly and with other relationships in their lives I would also encourage counselors and other advisors to read this book if they are interested in promoting a poly friendly practice

    The method is exactly what you expect a workbook It is a great tool to discover your inner thoughts and dive into your own experiences related to jealousy It does not give you a solution for feeling what you are feeling but rather to cope, understand and accept these natural feelings I recommend it for whoever is interested in the topic of jealousy and whoever wants to learnabout their emotional being Good
