To feel ‘assertive’ is to feel confident, to respect others and to have them respect you. To achieve this a fine balance of skills is required, including the ability to control our emotions, to communicate effectively and the ability to prevent other people from using negative strategies to take advantage of us. This course will provide you with the opportunity to learn and practice these skills in a safe environment and give you a plan you can confidently implement on your own, long after the course is over.
