Sometimes there comes a time in the course of counselling or therapy when a client wishes to manage conflict with someone, perhaps confronting behaviour, giving or receiving criticism or making/refusing requests. This may be anxiety provoking and require a change in their usual behaviour. The change, however, can have a powerful effect on the response and the client’s future confidence.
In this course I will be teaching the behaviours used in assertiveness training, integrating them into TA theory and other modalities and considering when and how they may be shared with a client.
By the end of the workshop participants will:
- feel confident in using a number of assertive technique and have considered their use with clients
- have considered the place of assertive behaviours within their own practice and the theory of their modality
- know the appropriate timing within the therapeutic process and how to contract to share them
- have the means to run an assertiveness training group
