Young People

Assertiveness Programme

This programme (up to 6 sessions) will help young adults, aged 13+, to learn respectful skills and thus reinforce change within the family system.

The emphasis is on growth in self-confidence, saying ‘no’ to peer pressure and finding fairer, less aggressive ways of dealing with problems.  They will learn how to live more confidently and to be more effective in dealing with awkward situations. They will learn how to deal with criticism, say ‘no’ respectfully, state their needs and deal with requests and demands.
