Assertion Training - Colleen Kelley

University Associates, 1979, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wraps.

First in this, paperback, edition. From the introduction: “Many people react to the word ‘assertion’ as though it were spelled with four letters and were synonymous with aggression or manipulation. Such reactions are understandable because assertion, aggression, and a variety of other response styles have been taught as ‘assertive’. But assertion in its original sense, and as it is used here, is based on humanistic values. This book was written for group facilitators or trainers who want to teach their clients to express themselves appropriately without violating their own basic human rights or the basic human rights of the others involved. Although therapists may find the book useful, it is written for the professional whose clients have situational rather than general assertion needs.”
