Trauma and Boundaries

Online Masterclass – 12th March
2 CPD Points
$80.00
Understanding and establishing boundaries can often be a complex emotional journey, encapsulated by a simple yet profound question: “What is and isn’t okay with me?” Boundaries serve as the foundation for every relationship, including the one we cultivate with ourselves. Think of them as sturdy retaining walls that provide essential protection. Without these boundaries confidently in place, everything else might feel unstable and insecure. Boundaries are integral to defining individuality and are a way of safeguarding and ensuring self-protection.

How it will help

Clients who have experienced complex trauma may have had their boundaries disregarded, overstepped, or violated. This masterclass will help clinicians support clients to overcome the challenges associated with identifying, establishing and respecting their own boundaries.

Clinicians themselves often struggle to set boundaries, especially during times of burnout where more emotional support is offered than can be safely provided without overstretching. This masterclass will provide strategies to establish and maintain healthy boundaries with clients and outside of the therapeutic relationship. 

What you will learn

This online masterclass delves into the multifaceted nature of boundaries, focusing on key aspects, including: 

  • Defining the concept of ‘boundaries’—embracing the power of ‘No’ for setting limits and the significance of ‘Yes!’ in reaching out. 
  • Recognizing different types of boundaries and how they might be disregarded, whether by external forces or through self-neglect. 
  • Understanding somatic cues that signal when a boundary has been breached—recognizing these cues through sensations, emotions, and intuition. 
  • Exploring the spectrum of boundary holding, from rigidly defined boundaries to excessively porous ones. 
  • Identifying societal, familial, or peer-derived messages and myths that shape your understanding of boundaries. 
  • Equipping you with effective strategies to establish and maintain healthy boundaries.
