About the event:

Boundaries are essentially a visual tool to keep trespassers out. If that’s the case, then how can we set boundaries with others while maintaining healthy respectful relationships in our personal and professional spaces? In this session, participants will explore boundary setting through a cultural lens. They will recognize the benefits of establishing healthy boundaries as well as develop ways to encourage acceptable interactions that foster respect and understanding for thriving lives.
