Topic 1 What are boundaries?

Boundaries differ from barriers, since a barrier defines a space that cannot be surpassed. A boundary is an imaginary line that marks the limit of something. Boundaries refer to appropriate and non-appropriate behaviours and can be physical, mental, or emotional. Physical boundaries refer to your own personal space and limits when being around your teammates. Mental boundaries reflect your own values and ideas. Emotional boundaries relate to how you feel on different occasions and to empathy.
