In Summary

Assertive relationships are healthy relationships, based on mutual respect.

Assertive people demand and expect to be treated with respect.

An assertive person will not tolerate bullying behaviour in others; they will not, of course, bully others; they will not 'rescue' others, but will attempt to empower them - by sharing what they themselves have learnt about assertiveness.

EVERYONE CAN LEARN TO BE ASSERTIVE. THE MORE ASSERTIVE PEOPLE THERE ARE IN THE WORLD, THE BETTER PLACE IT WILL BE.

Recommended Reading:

"A Woman in your Own Right" by Ann Dickson is available from most good bookshops.

This fact-sheet has been prepared to help you to begin to take control of your life. A good assertiveness training workshop can work wonders very quickly... no matter how young or old you are. Further copies can be obtained, together with a companion fact sheet called "Stress Does Not Exist" by contacting the Peter Smith, through the Alopecia Awareness Team
