Polysecure, the premise of having secure attachment with the self and others, is a growing idea emerging in attachment research. While once thought to be exclusive to monogamous relationships, recent data suggests new attachment patterns and connections in varying relationships, including consensual non-monogamy.

By identifying attachment patterns and how they influence the broader relational system, we begin to illuminate our capacity for trust in multiple relationships and challenge the idea that there is “one true way” of creating attachment with partners. Through the HEARTS method of approaching secure attachment, one can begin to learn to support and guide clients who are consensually non-monogamous to develop and maintain multiple secure relationships.
