On the one hand, relationships make our lives colorful, but if we don't handle them well, they can also cause a lot of harm. Intimate interpersonal relationships should be comfortable and desirable. How to balance appropriate care instead of strangling the autonomy of others too closely is a daily homework in interpersonal relationships. The author, Dr. Wan Yang Wanzhen, has been engaged in Christian clinical psychological counseling for more than 30 years. In this book, she provides theories about the boundaries of interpersonal relationships, deconstructs the boundaries from theological and psychological perspectives, how unhealthy boundaries are formed, etc., and supplements with case examples. Make it easier for readers to grasp and understand. The author pays more attention to pastors and leaders who participate in the ministry. They are marginalized in spiritual needs and emotional support, and found that they are seen as having no spiritual retreat or emotional problems at all. This book has a special space for readers to understand the additional difficulties and challenges that pastors face in maintaining healthy boundaries in interpersonal relationships and ministry. Boundaries are not regulatory or manipulative. Instead, they define roles, expectations, desires, expressions, respect, reciprocity and other healthy positions in relationships. The author hopes that this book can help readers construct healthy boundaries in interpersonal relationships. 【About the Author】 Dr Wan Yang Wanzhen Visiting professor of the Department of Counselling at the Chinese Academy of Theology, graduated from the University of Illinois (UIUC) with a master's degree in social work and a master's degree in religion from Trinity International University in Illinois.
