JOY IS NOW: WHY BOUNDARIES ARE A COURTESY

In this newest THEORY segment I discuss BOUNDARIES. Hooray! The cause of and solution to everyone's problems. Boundaries are one of my favorite things to think about. I've had a lot of practice around boundaries, mostly from my work with acute populations and close study of group behavior and systems dynamics.

It is a practice that has transformed my life, ad one that has had many different iterations over these past years. Most recently, I felt the need to write longer pieces that I work on each day and then publish at the week's end in the Lisa Anderson Shaffer Newsletter. This episode is a reading of one of my essays, along...
