Many of us who choose to work in human services have big hearts and generous spirits. We develop our practice skills and communication, but don’t always consider boundaries, especially when the needs to those we work with so often exceed our own.
Boundaries are essential to practice in the helping professions, as they make caring sustainable, and protect skilled workers from compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatization and burnout. They ensure that we’re bringing our best selves to the work we love so much. During this challenging period of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is especially important for social service providers to be aware of Boundaries practice.
Boundary practice encourages us to consider our own energy and how we’re spending it, and to understand pre-existing patterns of relating that attract us to the helping professions, while also making boundary practice more difficult. In this workshop hosted by the BC Council for Families, participants will learn about boundary practice, the three many boundary styles, and how to recognize them at work.
