When we struggle with low mood and/or anxiety, it can be hard to communicate our needs, opinions, and emotions effectively. This in turn can keep our low mood and/or anxiety going.
This workshop aims to help attendees:
- Understand the difference between passive, assertive and aggressive communication & behaviour
- Learn about your own style of relating to others
- Learn practical techniques to be more assertive in everyday situations
Together we will learn how failure to be assertive affects us emotionally and physically, as well as the way it changes how we think and behave in different situations. You will learn a range of coping strategies to help improve your communication including;
- General Assertiveness Techniques
- Making Requests
- Saying ‘NO’
- Coping with Criticism
- Accepting Compliments
All workshops have been recorded by our therapists and are available to view online. We are currently unable to run face to face workshops due to the pandemic. You can see all of our workshops here.
