Boundaries: Supporting vs. Caretaking

Monday, January 18th 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Taylore Runkles will be presenting a three-part series on Boundaries: Supporting vs. Caretaking. The sessions will be on Monday nights beginning January 18th, followed by January 25th and February 1st. Taylore has recommended that we read “Rising Strong” by Brene Brown in preparation for discussion during the series. We will send a copy to the first 50 registrants.

This series will help to empower boundary setting by engaging with the definitions of caretaking and supporting. In so doing, we can see how parents, families, or loved ones of addicted persons can find the path from caretaking to supporting. Additional points of discussion will include how healing & shame develop, a review of roles in the Karpman Triangle; victim, rescuer, prosecutor, themes of codependency and attachment, and the empowerment dynamic available in recovery.
