Editorial Reviews

Author, Changepower! - Meg Selig, LPC, NCC
“… by far the best book available on assertiveness in sexual and dating situations. I chose it as the text for several college classes, and my students invariably gave it an A+ rating. Despite the seriousness of the subject, the book entertains as well as enlightens, with thought-provoking and even hilarious scripts about typical blunders--and how to set things right by being direct and honest.
On Campus with Women - Assn. of American Colleges
“Appropriate for both teens and adults, this guide offers rules, facts, and practical dialogues to help increase sexual assertiveness.”
Wilson Library Bulletin - Wilson Library
“…likely to find a diverse and willing audience…, the book provides advice for teenage and adult male and female potential victims…. Step-by-step instructions and practical exercises for improving sexual communication skills.
The Webb Report, a Newsletter on Sexual Harassment - Susan Webb
“Ms. Powell’s book is an excellent resource—a thorough and complete “how-to-handle these situations” manual. Comprehensible, readable, and practical.”

Meet the Author

Elizabeth Powell, M.S., M.A., is a clinical psychologist who specializes in how to be assertive using informal language. Her major life passion, as she explains it, is “to teach everyone the coping skills we all wish we had learned in high school.” She was Professor of Psychology at St. Louis Community College for many years, where she taught Human Sexuality, Child Development, and the Psychology of Coping Strategies, a course she designed. She also founded their AIDS Task Force. She was twice given the Master Teacher award by the National Institute of Staff and Organizational Development. Her background includes internships in clinical psychology and family systems therapy. Trained in psychodrama and role play, she enjoys using humor, as when her male students role-played on a national teleconference showing how to resist locker room pressure to brag about sex on a date. Powell also writes for children, where she sneaks in some coping skills whenever possible.

    If sexual pressure is something you or someone you love has expe

    If sexual pressure is something you or someone you love has experienced (and who hasn't) and you wish you had more tools to handle
    it, this is the book for you. This book is packed with information and examples that helped me not only learn how to respond to sexual
    pressure, but also define my current attitudes and beliefs about sex.  The author unflinchingly, and in a style that’s down to earth, covers
    topics that most of us don’t really let ourselves consider because sexual pressure is not usually talked about openly and sanely. I wish
    I had been in one of Elizabeth Powell’s courses when I was young. The examples she uses from her classes let me put myself right in
    tough situations. I could follow along and imagine how I might react now, and how I could learn to respond in a way that was more true
    to my real thoughts and feelings.  I highly recommend this book.
