Assertiveness Group

The assertiveness training group is formed in recognition of the difficulty that many people have while standing up for themselves and what they want, while respecting the needs of others. The struggle to balance the right to express their opinions, needs, and desires, while maintaining healthy work, personal, and romantic relationships is not an easy task. Assertiveness training can provide the skills and tools to help you relate to others with less anxiety and resentment while retaining self-respect and power over your attitude and over your own life.

Group therapy is a powerful modality to acquire new skills and practice it while facilitating growth and change. Although might be uncomfortable at first, most clients report that the group experience was helpful far beyond their expectations. Individual clients in group receive understanding, support, and encouragement from others that facile similar situation and challenges and at the same time gain different perspectives and support in dealing with those issues.
