The conceptual framework of the study was based on “Peplau’s Interpersonal Model” (1952). The study variables were assertiveness skills, self-esteem and iv assertiveness training. Hypotheses were formulated. The level of significance selected was p<0.05. An extensive review of literature and guidance by experts formed the foundation to the development of study instruments. A quasi experimental research design was selected to achieve the objectives of the study. The study was conducted at Freedom care and foundation, Sithalapakkam and Wisdom hospitals, Saidapet. The sample size of the study was 60 (30 in each group). The settings were randomised and allotted to the control and experimental group. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the samples from the respective settings. The instruments used in the study were demographic variable proforma of alcoholic patients, clinical variable proforma of alcoholic patients, Rathus assertiveness schedule, Rosenberg self-esteem scale. The data collection tools were validated and the reliability was established through split half technique. After the pilot study, the data for the main study was collected by self-administration and interview method. Assertiveness training includes activities like practice sessions with detailed exercises, worksheets, video shows, games and innovative methods with lecture cum discussion using power point presentation. It was a one hour session for a period of ten days. Assertiveness training was administered only to the experimental group. On the 15th day, assertiveness skills and self-esteem scores were assessed for both the control and experimental group by using the Rathus assertiveness schedule and Rosenberg’s self-esteem scale. The level of satisfaction on administration of assertiveness training was assessed by using the rating scale in the experimental group. Then collected data were tabulated and analysed using descriptive (frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation) and inferential statistics (t-test and chi square test).
