Boundaries show up in our lives every day. We experience boundaries at work, at home with our families, in our friendships, and now, more than ever, due to the pandemic we are asked to both know and assert our boundaries in the world. But how do we do that? What do we even mean by effective boundaries and what exactly are they?  How do our boundaries change and what gets in the way of understanding our boundaries and asserting them?  

Join CIIS faculty and therapist Emily Marinelli for an experiential workshop on developing and practicing how to set and maintain effective boundaries in your life.  

In this workshop, Emily teaches behavioral tools such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Non-Violent Communication to situate boundaries within the context and an awareness of systems of power, privilege, and oppression.  Emily invites you to explore boundary setting through the lens of self-compassion and compassion for those around you. Empathy, compassion, and mindfulness become anchors for setting meaningful boundaries and the framework for how we can assert ourselves more effectively in the world. 

Learn the skills of effective boundary setting to support your spiritual, personal, and professional life.  

This event will be hosted live online. Instructions on how to join will be included in your event confirmation email. If you need additional assistance finding or joining the event, please email publicprograms@ciis.edu.
