Setting clear boundaries with a young adult in active addiction and/or early recovery is one of the most challenging processes for parents. Defining and communicating boundaries and expectations provides a framework for expectations that serves all members of the family system. Knowing which boundaries to set, how to communicate them appropriately, and the healthiest ways to enforce them are some of the questions clients with a loved one in active addiction often bring to therapy.
Join Matt O’Connor, Green Hill’s Clinical Director and boundary expert, for our upcoming Virtual CEU Session – Boundaries: Myths and Facts, on Wednesday, December 9th, at 1pm ET. In this session, Matt will discuss several of the myths and facts regarding how to support clients in appropriate, healthy, and effective boundary setting and management.
Here are some additional questions we’ll explore in the CEU session:
- What is an effective and ineffective boundary?
- What are the differences between personal and contact boundaries?
- How do we set boundaries as a family unit vs personal boundaries?
