This new updated version of the Boundaries Video series is extremely disappointing. I facilitated this class several times back in 1994 or 1995. Those original videos are between 27 and 37 minutes long and taught the material in the Boundaries book. There is not a session that is 10 minutes long in this new series! They are nothing more than introductions to a discussion of the book and not worth any amount of money and useless, in my opinion. Using the Study Guide and the book would serve you much, much better. Even the questions and discussion suggestions in the Participant Guide to the Video Kit are useless. Don't buy it! If you can find the old series, you will be much, much happier and educated on the subject of Boundaries. BTW-I am passionate about this topic. I would say it "saved my life" back in the 90s.
I am leading the small group in my church through this curriculum. I have been overwhelmed at the positive response from men and women, mature and teen. This impacts the lives of everyone, whether they have poor boundaries or live with someone who does. Drs. Cloud and Townsend penned a classic with this book, and it continues its impact in the small group setting.
Our small group purchased 2 products: the DVD and participate guide (small book to go with dvd). I ended up purchasing the book and workbook. I've read the Boundary book long time ago and loved it. Our small group wanted to learn about boundaries. We didn't want something that had a lot of homework and my group likes DVD lessons. The DVD and Listener guide was a huge disappointment. I ended up re-writing the lessons because most of the questions didn't even make sense. I would only get the book and workbook
