Empowering Teens: Boundaries and Interpersonal Effectiveness

Join us for our second Empowering Teens event with the NCMA’s Teen Arts Council (TAC). This series is organized by the TAC to create a community of teens interested in exploring mental health topics through the arts and with the support of local mental health professionals.

Healthy relationships are sustained by healthy boundaries. One way to build healthy boundaries is to understand and use interpersonal effectiveness skills. This interactive workshop led by Dr. Marvella Bowman introduces participants to these concepts. Attendees then create artwork that can serve as a reminder to be honest, communicate needs, and maintain values.
