Events for March 2023
AuSM Skillshop – Setting and Keeping Boundaries
Presenter: Sara Lahti (Pronouns: she/her)
Date: Tuesday, Mar. 28 from 7-9 p.m.
Boundaries. We have heard of them, but what does it mean to have boundaries? And how do you maintain them successfully? This workshop will cover tips and tricks for creating and keeping solid boundaries. Participants will also learn about social cues related to boundaries, how to respond to a boundary violation, and the role of emotions in boundary-setting.
Sara Lahti, a Mental Health Practitioner and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, graduated with her Master of Arts degree in 2018 and previously earned a BA in psychology through the University of St. Thomas. Lahti has worked with children with ASD as well as with people with ASD and other disabilities in a day program facility.
Lahti has a passion for working with adults on the autism spectrum. She uses Adlerian and person-centered therapeutic techniques to help clients better understand themselves and their strengths. Lahti’s Master’s thesis focused on using Early Recollections with people on the spectrum, which she believes is central to understanding clients’ core beliefs. She works with clients on thought patterns and how they affect daily living and also helps clients develop social interest within themselves and their communities.
