What makes us behave the way we do?

Overview

Last Published  01 August 2012

It is a lot easier to behave assertively when we also think assertively, but few people actually think about the way they think. This tool, based on structured discussion, provides an overview of the thinking processes that affect our behaviour. It can be used as a stand-alone activity or as a lead-in to activities on inner dialogues and rights.

Tool aim
  • To help participants understand how the way they think affects their behaviour. It shows how our thinking can make it easier to feel and be assertive and how it can undermine our good intentions.
