Country Cupboard, 101 Hafer Rd, Lewisburg, PA 17837, USA

About the Event

In this training we examine the important reasons - for both ourselves and our clients - for setting boundaries, as well as how to be better at communicating role clarification and personal and professional limits to assist clients in knowing what to appropriately expect and ask of us. We’ll clarify how setting and keeping boundaries actually aids us in setting and keeping limits.

We’ll also review the emotions that both guide us in working effectively with clients, but also potentially present difficulties for us - and ways to handle our emotional reactions (or, conversely, disengagement from clients) so that we can remain appropriate, healthy and effective as helpers – avoiding both over-helping and becoming disaffected.
