Strategic Communication Skills & Healthy Boundaries

How to use communication skills to ensure healthy boundaries leading to a successful life.

Facilitator: Michael Beckham and Bhavna Bharvani

This group session aims to empower participants by teaching effective communication skills for establishing healthy boundaries. It includes interactive classes with role play, discussions, and case scenarios, focusing on improving relationships, self-awareness, and mental health​.


Learning effective Communication Skills to create Healthy Boundaries can have meaningful benefits:

  1. Improved Relationships: Clear communication can help avoid misunderstandings and conflicts, leading to healthier relationships both personally and professionally.
  2. Self-Empowerment: Setting boundaries allows individuals to advocate for their needs and wants, promoting self-respect and self-efficacy.
  3. Better Mental Health: Boundaries can help reduce stress, anxiety, and burnout, contributing to improved mental health.
  4. Increased Productivity: In a professional setting, clear communication and boundaries can lead to a more focused and efficient work environment.
  5. Enhanced Self-Understanding: The process of setting boundaries requires self-reflection and understanding of one’s values, needs, and limits.
  6. Respect for Others: By setting your own boundaries, you learn to respect others’ boundaries as well, fostering mutual respect in relationships.

What the group would entail?

This Workshop consists of 4, 75 minute, interactive classes (also referred to as ‘sessions’) to explore the benefits of using Strategic Communication Skills in order to enhance our Boundaries with others, thus seemingly effortlessly transforming our lives. Participants will have the opportunity to fully engage in the Educational process as well as role play, dissecting case scenarios, open discussions and generous amounts of Q&A opportunities.

Personal/Professional Empowerment and Strategic Skills have been embraced by the Workshop participants in the past.

This Workshop is a great way to begin to help participants to process and manage their lives with intent.

During our last session we will spend time reinforcing our new skills and demonstrating the concepts presented in this workshop.

What is the role of the therapist?

It is the therapist’s responsibility to manage the process of the Workshop and to ensure a smooth, safe, and effective participant experience resulting in creating a new understanding of how strategic communication can greatly affect our lives.

This Workshop will be organized using a ‘ramp up’ style to Educational Presentations with the goal of easing participants into new skills and strategies with an organic concept flow.

Is this group for me?

Participating in a workshop on communication and boundary skills can be a transformative experience. It equips individuals with the tools to express themselves clearly and assertively, fostering healthier personal and professional relationships. The workshop empowers participants to set and respect boundaries, promoting self-respect and mutual understanding.

This, in turn, reduces stress and enhances productivity. Moreover, the process of setting boundaries encourages self-reflection, leading to a deeper understanding of one’s values and needs. Ultimately, such a workshop can be a stepping stone towards improved mental health, self-efficacy, and interpersonal relationships.

Participants are encouraged to attend all sessions as each new Workshop session builds on the previous concepts.

Participants do not need to pass a pre-screen due to the nature of the workshop.
