Event Details

Asserting Boundaries

7-week-series

by

Dorothy Pennant PhD, MSc, NCC, QMHP, CSAC

 

 

The workshop helps participants develop assertive interpersonal behavior in their homes, extended families, places of volunteer or paid work, and community. Interpersonal effectiveness is influenced by the capacity for self-assertion that results in mutual respect and stable relationships.

Participants will talk about the different challenges experienced by men and women in constructing and maintaining different types of boundaries.  They will explore the importance of assertiveness within the context of their particular lives.  The focus will be on asserting internal boundaries critical to men and women relating in family, work, and social spaces without violating consent or dignity and without enmeshment.  Self-assertion skills that show respect for feelings, intentions, desires, motives, beliefs, and opinions will be practiced through role playing of assertiveness scripts developed during the sessions.  Participants will identify personal goals for which they will develop assertive scripts targeting an objective goal (for example, asking for a pay raise; communicating a feeling; and maintaining individual rights.
