Parenting With Healthy Boundaries

When working with adults who experienced childhood adversity, abuse, and neglect, one thing has always stood out: patterns of early boundary violations.  The effects of abuse and boundary violations in childhood are complex and heterogeneous, but some common complicating factors are a lack of a secure attachment, poor boundaries at home and a lack of communication. Blaming either parent or child, creates a very difficult dynamic and complicates the healing process.

This has inspired Dr. Jeyarajan to focus on how to help children learn about their boundaries early on, and facilitate communications between parent and child. Workshop participants will learn the complex interplay between attachment, boundaries, empathy and consent.

Participants will learn how to teach children to assert their boundaries from a young age, ultimately leading to chronic abuse prevention and early disclosure when faced with interpersonal trauma.
