Everyone has a built-in alarm system that tells you when your boundaries have been crossed. If someone gets too close physically, you take a step back – even before COVID-19. But what about your emotional boundaries? If someone ask you to do something you’re not comfortable with, your alarm sounds. But sometimes through conditioning or family or social pressures that alarm, like a muscle, can grow weak or so faint. You may struggle to hear it, or not know how to respond.

In this program, Jill Hamilton Buss, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, explores boundaries and shares ways to strengthen them – especially with chronic boundary crossers…think well-meaning parents, partners, siblings or adult children. Like healthy physical boundaries, healthy emotional boundaries protect you. Learn more about the important role they play in keeping you healthy, centered and safe.

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