Effective communication is a critical skill that influences your
professional success, the stability of your family life, and your
personal happiness. Your ability to communicate effectively is
seriously hampered if you can't assert yourself constructively.
If you've ever felt paralyzed by an imposing individual or
strongly argued opposing point of view, you know that a lack of
assertiveness can leave you feeling marginalized and powerless.
The Assertiveness Workbook
contains effective, cognitive
behavioral techniques to help you become more assertive. Learn
how to set and maintain personal boundaries without becoming
inaccessible. Become more genuine and open in relationships
without fearing attack. Defend yourself when you are criticized
or asked to submit to unreasonable requests.
