Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Krista Rothchild

Assertiveness is the quality of being self-assured and confident without being aggressive. In the field of psychology and psychotherapy, it is a learnable skill and mode of communication.

This module looks at the positive and negative aspects of assertiveness and how we can use assertive behaviours in the most effective way in everyday life.

We will explore

  • What is assertiveness?
  • What is non-assertive behaviour?
  • What are the results of non-assertive behaviour?
  • What is aggressive behaviour?
  • What are the results of aggressive behaviour?

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plans – KS3 to KS5
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
