Healthy Assertiveness for Women and Men
A big part of changing your lifestyle and maintaining theses healthy changes is being able to get what you need. This could mean a variety of things such as taking your allotted lunch break at work, suggesting a walk instead of dessert at the usual ice cream place, asking for what you need from your partner, or telling your doctor what he/she suggested isn’t working. Most people have difficulty with assertiveness in one way or another, often without realizing it. Come join clinical psychologist Dr. Rachel Burnett for a discussion on assertiveness and ideas to help support your weight loss efforts.
