This session on asserting yourself aims to help people to identify why assertive behaviour is sometimes difficult, and the specific blocks and barriers that get in the way. It then goes on to explore a useful three-step technique for being assertive that can be applied in a wide range of situations.


In particular, by the end of the Power Hour attendees will be able to:


·         Describe some of their assertive rights, and why these are important

·         Identify and display assertive behaviours

·         Apply a three-step model to assert themselves in a wide range of situations
