Coping with Relationship Jealousy

Jealousy…think your immune to it? Guess again. I treat couples who are jealous of their partner’s relationship with the kids, with the dog, and with their career. It’s an emotion that we can identify in babies as young as 6 months, but we don’t talk about it enough. What is jealousy versus envy? How we can foster a healthier relationship with jealousy so that we can use it to learn about ourselves and develop a stronger connection with our partners? Jealousy expert, Dr. Joli Hamilton, who gave a TED talk all about jealousy, is going to help us make sense of this very complex emotion. Joli is also a research psychologist, professor of human sexuality, and a sex & relationship coach. Let’s dive in.
