Abstract

Randomly assigned 45 nonassertive female university students (Rathus Assertiveness Schedule) to 1 of 3 individual counseling programs: placebo counseling, standard assertion training, or assertion training incorporating anger induction procedures. The standard method proved superior on a self-report measure, but on 1 of 4 behavioral ratings the anger induction method was most beneficial. (This rating involved the withholding of $4 from Ss' $16 deposit, contrary to agreement.) Low interrelationships among the measures of assertiveness suggest that the "trait" assertiveness may well be situation specific. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
