Topic:           Setting Limits, Saying No:

                                A Guide For Teaching   

                       Clients Better Boundaries



Program Description:

If your clients have difficulty saying no or find themselves pleasing others at their own expense, they have poor personal boundaries. Healthy boundaries are essential for a meaningful, well-lived life. They promote health, inner peace, safety, confidence and positive relationships. On the other hand, ineffective boundaries create confusing, unhappy relationships; cause a loss of respect and control; and open the door to victimization. This presentation is designed to help you teach clients how to understand boundaries, recognize boundary violations, and establish and enforce effective boundaries.

Learning Objectives:

Meeting participants will learn how to help clients:

. Identify types of boundaries and how they function

. Recognize healthy vs unhealthy boundaries

. Know the signs of damaged boundaries

. Set and communicate effective boundaries
