Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n3 p419-25 Jun 1992
Physically disabled adults (n=34) participated in assertiveness training (AT) program, being randomly assigned to AT or waiting-list condition. AT subjects showed significant improvements on self-reported assertiveness and role-play performance from pre- to posttest, whereas controls showed no changes. Overall results support use of AT in enhancing perceived social efficacy and interpersonal skill of adults in wheelchairs. (Author/NB)
