Develop healthy boundaries, one card at a time
What are your values, needs, and desires? What are your deal breakers? What is your personal definition of consent? What would you do if someone stole your place in line? What if a friend says you've hurt them? These 52 cards prompt reflection and conversation about your and others’ boundaries, needs, consent, and relationships. Consider your past history, current strategies for recognizing and relating boundaries, and ideas to communicate more effectively in the future. There are no right or wrong answers, only your answers.
There are two kinds of cards in this deck:
- Reflection cards are designed to help you become more conscious of your thought patterns, how they have been influenced by your past, and how you would like to shape them to better suit your present and future (and can also be used for discussions).
- Situation cards ask "What Would You Do?" These are designed to help you consider potential scenarios so you can plan out strategies to manage them effectively.
Created as a companion to the book Unfuck Your Boundaries, this deck can be used on its own or with the book. Communication tips are included, as are instructions for personal use, discussion, and groups. Perfect for individuals, couples, or friends looking for greater insight into their boundaries and relationships, and for therapists and clinical use.

Part of the Five Minute Therapy Series.
