149 participants in assertiveness training groups rated their degree of interest in improving their assertive skills in 26 areas. A rank order of mean interest ratings for 149 trainees indicated that being assertive when confronted with another's aggression was the highest priority, whereas saying “no” in various situations assumed a much lower priority. Results indicate where assertiveness training groups may be deficient in meeting individuals' needs and suggest areas for increased emphasis that would more effectively meet these needs.
