Join Licensed MHC Jill Hamilton Buss for Healthy Boundaries: How to Strengthen Yours to Reduce Stress and Improve Relationships.

Everyone has a built-in alarm system that tells us when our boundaries are being or have been crossed. For example, if someone gets near you physically, you take a step back. But what about your emotional boundaries? If someone asks you to do something you’re not comfortable with, does your alarm sound? Sometimes through conditioning including family or social pressures, that alarm — which is like a muscle — can grow weak or faint. You may struggle to even hear it, or not know how to respond.

Join Licensed Mental Health Counselor Jill Hamilton Buss for Healthy Boundaries: How to Strengthen Yours to Reduce Stress and Improve Relationships. In this workshop, Jill will help you explore your boundaries and learn ways to strengthen them, including how to handle chronic boundary crossers during the upcoming holidays – think well-meaning parents, partners, siblings or adult children. Like healthy physical boundaries, healthy emotional boundaries can protect you. Join to learn more about the important role they play in keeping you healthy, centered and safe.

Special Instructions: Handouts provided, but feel free to bring a journal or paper and a pen for note taking.

This program is presented by Jill Hamilton Buss and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
