    Do you sometimes take on too much with your clients? Do you have a hard time saying no?  We are all in this work to help people find meaningful work and there aren’t any sweeter words than, “I got the job!”  However, without clear boundaries, it become easier to take on more than we should, and boundaries will help clients to develop greater self-efficacy.  Setting boundaries with your clients may feel unnatural and even mean-spirited, however, this webinar will convince you that boundaries are an essential and important way to create more value for your clients, and a major factor in contributing positively to your own mental health.

    Format

    This interactive session will provide some lecture and incorporate discussion on real-world scenarios and provide participants with practical tips to help stay on track.

    Learning Objectives

    At the completion of this Webinar, attendees will be able to:

    • Understand why boundaries are needed
    • How to set clear boundaries respectfully and empathetically
    • Reset when boundaries are breached and respond when pushback happens
