Appropriate Boundaries for Safety are one of the four essential puzzle pieces of recovery from betrayal trauma.
Without boundaries for safety in place, it will be almost impossible to heal and progress in recovery. But, for many of us, the concept of boundaries is completely foreign when we first come to SAL. This course will walk you through, step-by-step, the process of understanding what boundaries you may need, why you need them, and how to implement them.
The support and guidance of an SAL sponsor will be invaluable here. We highly encourage you to use her as you go through the process of establishing your boundaries for safety.
This course will help you learn how to Stop and Stay Stopped.
We know from own experience the truth in this statement from the White Book: “Without sobriety, we have nothing to offer anyone.” (p.185)
Understanding our Addict Cycle and establishing effective Bottom Lines are a critical element of our ability to stop and stay stopped. Until we stop, it is impossible for us to progress in recovery.
The insight and accountability your sponsor can provide will be essential in creating bottom lines that work. Make sure to include him in your process of establishing boundaries and bottom lines for yourself.
