Assertive communication

In 2007 the Centre devised and piloted an assertiveness course for young people in  secondary school. We commissioned Collusion Theatre, which works with young people, to help us to devise a number of video clips to use to stimulate discussion. We also trained a variety of different professionals ? teachers and youth workers ? to deliver the course to young people they were working with.
