Development of an Assertiveness Training Module for College-Level Instructors.
Hill, Evelyn H.
An Assertiveness Skills program for faculty members at a major southwestern university was developed and evaluated. This paper describes the procedures used to (1) assess faculty concerns related to the interpersonal aspects of the instructional situation, (2) develop an assertiveness skills workshop series designed for university faculty, addressing those concerns, (3) conduct the workshops and (4) evaluate the results. Ss were randomly assigned to experimental and waiting list control groups. Outcome measures included pre- and post self-reports of social competence and in-lab behavioral situations, and self-reported amount of change both immediately after the workshop and at a six month follow-up. Results indicate the effectiveness of an assertiveness skills program in increasing self-confidence and assertive behavior. Followup results indicate that these changes are maintained over time and tend to generalize to situations other than those related to instructional situations. (Author)
