Assertiveness Class

What is it?

We know how busy life can be at times so we wrote our Assertiveness class to make sure we could fit it all into one session.    This one-off class provides you with the opportunity to learn what it means to be assertive and ways to become more assertive in your daily life.

It’s not an interactive class, it’s presented in a lecture style by our team, so all you have to do is sit back, listen and take it all in.

What does the session involve?

  • NHS professionals teach you tried and tested ways to become more assertive

  • You receive free information sheets

  • You can bring a friend or family member with you

  • You will not be asked to share your personal experiences

Course Content

The class is roughly an hour and a half with a short break in the middle.

Part 1 provides an introduction to different communication styles and what it means to be assertive.  The class uses videos to demonstrate different styles of communication and the pros and cons of each type.

Part 2 focuses on two specific areas that people find difficult: saying ‘No’ and dealing with criticism.  We also provide tips on how you can practice these techniques in your daily life.
