Assertion techniques are not merely concerned with go-getting lifestyles, or with making a spirited defence against sexist or racist behaviour. They are a tool for everyday life, enabling you to enhance your life and to be more effective both personally and professionally. Assertion Training shows how this can be achieved. Being assertive is about being who you really are - and it is also about recognizing and respecting other points of view, not just going for what you want at all costs. Using a wealth of illustrative examples and exercises, ten authors show how to get in touch with what you want; how to change your negative thought patterns; how to value your own opinions; how to deal with rejection and criticism; and how to build self-esteem and confidence. Written in an appealing and direct style, Assertion Training is intended above all as a practical, self-help guide. It will also be useful to people running their own programmes and will be essential reading for those about to set up their own assertion training groups.
