abstract

  • The impact of assertiveness training on job-related functioning has not been evaluated. This study, conducted in a tertiary care psychiatric facility, assessed whether assertiveness training changed nurses' perceptions of assertiveness, attitudes toward power, functioning within the nursing team, and functioning within the multidisciplinary team. This article describes a four-part assertiveness training course that was found to significantly affect feelings of assertiveness.
