From politicians to actors to hollywood executives, people are getting called-out for sexual misconduct by the dozens. While it's not totally surprising to learn that people in power abuse that power - it's not even surprising to regularly hear stories of men behaving badly, even assaulting women, sexually. Perhaps the most troubling thing about these recent reports of sexual misconduct and assault - in addition to the horrors that are those two things, already - are that they involve some of our favorite and generally well-respected public figures - and we're likely just seeing the tip of the iceberg. No reasonable person would argue that sexual assault, aggression, or unwelcome lewd conversation and behavior are wrong. What is helpful to understand, however, is what is being violated - fundamentally - in these situations. In order to be more aware of our own behaviors and to respect the boundaries of others, we need to identify the basic rules of social etiquette and maybe more importantly: understand our obligation to ourselves to set and maintain boundaries Join guest, Matt LeBauer, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and expert in boundaries and consent, for a REALLY IMPORTANT conversation that is not only topical, but fundamental to humanity and morality. References: Loneliness is a living version of death. Matt cites Love's Executioner by Irvin Yalom in exploring loneliness and ultimately fear of death as being the root causes of poor boundaries and unwillingness to disappoint others.
