Striving for Flexible Psychological Boundaries in the Voice Studio

A flexible boundary is like a cell membrane: it gives shape and structure to the cell and protects it from its surroundings while also selectively allowing substances to enter the cell that will allow it to survive. Likewise, our boundary can give shape and structure to our identity, protect us from things that might harm us, and allow things to pass through that can feed and nurture us. Today, I'm exploring the ways teachers and students manage their boundaries in lesson contexts.
