Addresses people pleasing as a disease


(one of my weaknesses)
Self-Assessment quizzes
Teaches how to say no and importance of setting
boundaries
A people pleaser is very aware of both the explicit
and implicit demands of others but must realize
that resources are finite. You cannot delegate
effectively if you put yourself last (Braiker, 2001).

full patient assignments and were not
