Title
A Theological and Psychological Rationale for Assertiveness Training
Abstract

Christians sometimes avoid assertiveness training because they believe it conflicts with Christian values stressing self-sacrifice. The present article argues that while Christians need to be wise consumers of this or any other form of skills training, assertiveness and Christian values are much more consonant than they are dissonant. The article clarifies the psychological concept of assertiveness, examines related theological-scriptural material, and looks at the possible impact of increased assertiveness in the church.
