Assertiveness Course 27 / 03 / 2018

This course is NOW FINISHED

And here is what people said about the course ALL FEEDBACK


What was the best thing about this course?

 Very supportive environment
 I found it very helpful and liked the way it was linked to Jesus' teaching.
 I found this course really stimulating motivating me to look closely at my relationships with family and friends
 Meeting & discussing the ideas with the other participants
 Role Playing
 The videos were really helpful
 The people on it
 I really enjoyed (the) atmosphere of the course.
 Made me feel positive and welcomed.
 Really enjoyed meeting other people.
 Learning the skill of saying ‘no'
 Realising and becoming more aware of my rights and needs

What was your overall ‘take home' learning?

 To not stress so much
 To reflect on behaviour
 It's okay to take time for yourself
 You have a right to ask for what you want/express your feelings (although you might not get it you keep your dignity) and that it's okay for others to do this too.
 To be assertive yourself before you can be assertive with others

What was the most difficult thing for you about this course?

 To receive a compliment
 First session was a bit overwhelming in terms of new experience, but as the course progressed it was easier to share and discuss any problems
 Opening up discussions
 Recognising aspects of yourself - you need to change
 Doing the homework
 The role play was quite difficult at first but then as we got to know each other it became easier
 Practising the techniques in the ‘heat' of a situation but I think this will come. I am much more aware of the techniques as things are happening
 I was nervous about taking part in the role play, but as the sessions went on I became more confident and relaxed with this activity
 Owning up to myself about areas of assertiveness / constructive criticism that I tended to bury and not deal with

What would have helped (what would you have liked)?

o I wouldn't change anything. The course was well run and very enjoyable
o Nothing - it would be difficult to improve
o All enjoyable and well organised
o A link to the video - so I could review it again
o I was given the opportunity to think about this and talk about it

What would you say to someone thinking of attending this course in the future?

 Do it! it's a positive learning experience - and good fun
 Do it!
 Highly recommend
 Do it
 Go for it, you will benefit from the course
 Well worth doing, a fantastic course and all parents should do (it)!
 It's a really good course to attend.
 I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
 I would encourage them and tell them about the skills I have learnt
 For sure this course would be of value to anyone who is experiencing any sense of lack of confidence in who they are or what they want to achieve
