How To Recognize And Set Healthy Boundaries
Anne Katherine, M.A.
Drawing on decades of personal and professional experience as a therapist as well as stories from others who have learned how to heal from serious boundary violations, the author brings a foundational guide on the who, what, and why of boundaries.
As cutting of the skin causes pain and injury, a breach of any of the physical, emotional, or sexual boundaries can be very harmful to the body and mind. Many may need help to heal from past boundary violations, respect others' boundaries, and learn how to set healthy limits for the future.
Boundaries bring order, strengthen relationships, and are essential to mental and physical health. For those who have walked away from a conversation, meeting, or visit feeling violated and not understanding why, this book helps us recognize and set healthy boundaries. Real-life stories illustrate the ill effects of not setting limits and the benefits gained by respecting our own boundaries and those of others.
