"Assertiveness problems--including excessive unassertiveness, aggressiveness, and passive-aggressiveness--afflict millions of people, leading to suffering and undermining potentials for happy, fulfilling lives. In "The Assertiveness Workbook," Dr. Randy J. Paterson combines science and clinical experience to create the definitive guide for overcoming assertiveness problems. Blending wisdom, wit, and compassions, this sophisticated yet highly readable volume shows people how to improve their assertiveness in a structured, step-by-step fashion. It is essential reading for anyone wanting to improve their assertiveness, and for therapists treating assertiveness problems." --Steven Taylor, Ph.D., R.Psych., Associate Professor, University of British Columbia, and Associate Editor of Behavior Research and Therapy
