The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the one with yourself. Healthy boundaries are essential, both to one’s sense of self and in having quality relationships with others. Yet for many, the concept of boundaries is foreign or confusing, and it can be difficult to know where to begin. Traditional approaches to learning about boundaries often focus on assertiveness training—come and learn about boundaries through the exploration of yourself and adult development. Learn how to “grow up” and to differentiate and, in the process, develop and enforce healthy boundaries in your life. Ultimately, come prepared to learn more about yourself in this skill-building session.
