Developing Assertiveness

This free course considers the reasons why we may struggle to say ‘no’, to give our true opinions or to receive criticism. It offers ideas and practice on interacting with others in an assertive way. Topics covered include:
  • Learn about different communication styles
  • Understand how to turn aggression into assertiveness
  • Learn simple assertiveness techniques to use in everyday life
  • Improve communication in your relationships
  • Practice asking for what you want
  • Learn how to say ‘no’
The course is run in a group format and will be a mixture of taught input, discussion and practice in small groups, but people can participate as much or as little as they choose to. Please note that while we provide teas and coffees, we recommend bringing your own lunch. Important information: Please note that this course is only available for people who are registered with a GP in the Swindon area.
