Book Detail

A Woman in Your Own Right (30th Anniversery Edition)


The million-selling A Woman in Your Own Right, revised and reissued to celebrate its 30th year.Anne Dickson defines assertiveness as the art of clear, honest and direct communication. An assertive approach builds self-esteem and strengthens our ability to make our own choices in life, by helping us to manage the anxiety and stress of communicating in difficult situations. Instead of being governed by the need to either please or blame others, assertiveness teaches us to take responsibility for our own feelings and behaviour.

A Woman in Your Own Right has become the core assertiveness training handbook, recommended in confidence building and personal development courses, coaching and mentoring programmes as well as counselling and therapeutic contexts throughout the UK and, with subsequent translations, in many parts of the world. Most importantly, Anne Dickson’s work has helped millions of women who have been inspired and empowered by this book.
