DCIS school counsellor Alison Ford and educational psychologist Vivienne Scott led a workshop on how to be assertive and students enjoyed opportunities to role-play assertive, rather than passive or aggressive, responses in different social scenarios. They practiced using 'I' messages to express their opinions in a calm and confident manner while still being respectful. We have encouraged students to practice these statements in school and at home.
