Training for self assertiveness

Assertiveness training is a therapeutic program intended to strengthen participants’ ability to effectively communicate their needs and wishes. Participants learn strategies to overcome passivity and interact with others confidently while avoiding excess aggressiveness.

Assertiveness lifts a person from being submissive (doormat) or being aggressive in styles of communication.
