Session 199: Maintaining Digital Boundaries

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Setting and maintaining boundaries is something we revisit often here on the podcast because I think for many of us there’s always work to be done in this area. One area that we haven’t discussed is what boundary setting looks like in the digital world. And who better to join us for this conversation than the woman who has literally written the book about boundaries, Nedra Glover Tawwab, LCSW. Nedra and I chatted about the 6 different types of boundaries, the differences between codependency and counterdependency, what it looks like to set boundaries in digital spaces, and she shared some reflection questions to help you to get in touch with the boundaries you may need to set.
