What is a personal boundary?
Setting boundaries is about setting our limits. By doing this we are taking responsibility for ourselves and promoting fairness and respect in relationships. Boundaries reflect our right to say “no” to those things that aren’t good for us. Boundaries are about learning to take care of ourselves, regardless of the circumstances. They emerge from a deep sense of our personal rights, especially the right to be ourselves. Effective boundary setting promotes our safety and self-respect and can also be beneficial to those with whom we set boundaries. This workshop will help you set and maintain successful boundaries. Participants will:
Discuss how boundary issues show up when facilitating.
Learn approaches and tactics in establishing boundaries.
Explore difficult boundary setting situations and how they might be managed better.
Practice setting boundaries in small group exercises.
Participants will be provided a copy of “Getting What You Want: Setting and Maintaining Boundaries with Others.”
