Let’s talk about emotional boundaries! Have you ever had a recurring negative message you tell yourself? Or have you ever internalized a message someone else said about you? Emotional boundaries help us set up a checkpoint in our minds and relationships that stops a statement or thought in its tracks before letting it pass. If a statement is untrue or goes against our values, a good boundary helps us challenge that thought or statement. To help us explore this topic, Neal is joined by Dr. Alison Cook, the person who literally wrote the book (two actually!) on boundaries.
Dr. Alison Cook is a psychologist and the author of two books, including her new book, “The Best of You” (Thomas Nelson 2022) and “Boundaries for Your Soul” (Thomas Nelson, 2018). For 20 years, Alison has helped women, ministry leaders, couples, and families learn how to heal painful emotions, develop confidence from the inside out, forge healthy relationships, and fully live out their God-given potential. Dr. Cook is certified in Internal Family Systems Therapy and specializes in bringing faith and psychology together to create real change in people’s lives. Dr. Cook lives in Boston with her husband, Joe, but they love traveling to the mountains of Wyoming.
