Birch ◆ August 5, 2022 ◆ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Viewing boundaries as not just barriers, but as parameters for safe and necessary vulnerability, we explore a multidimensional framework of this popular concept. The presentation highlights contexts for boundaries ranging from the psychotherapy office to social media memes. We consider trauma and gender’s influence on what makes a boundary safe and secure, including how it changes over the lifespan. The impact of transgenerational traumas ripple through individuals, interpersonal relationships, communities and systems of care; understanding how these boundaries are expressed is integral to lasting changes that empower and heal.
