Annales Universitatis Apulensis Series Oeconomica, 12(2), 2010 656 There is also no guarantee of success, even when you use assertive communication styles appropriately. Both in literature of specialty and in the literature usual, the term of assertive behavior was faced with what we understand by the term "aggression" and "passivity." Assertive behavior is often considered an opponent of aggressive behavior and passivity is not clearly delineated by assertiveness. Thus, cognitive-behavioral professionals need support in a first phase of restructuring the way of thinking, through combating negative thoughts, dysfunctional or underlying lack of confidence in the ability to express their views. That simply means that human exposure to what assertive behavior is & the examples of behavior will not be available to get from a pattern of behavioral change. References 1. Brehm Sharon S.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
