Join Therapist, Chris O’Rear, for Am I Called to be a Human Doormat?
Thursday, Sept. 17th, 3-4pm
This presentation will look at traditional passages from the Bible that are often used to encourage self-sacrifice and the lack of ego. We will look at Murray Bowen Systems Theory as a lens to explore possible alternative understandings that do not diminish either person in a relationship and accomplish a goal of mutuality.
