Receiving Criticism In Action: Role Play With A Friend How You Would Respond To Put Downs

This is your opportunity to practice all the amazing things you would have said if you had thought of them in the moment (don’t worry very few of us do have an immediate reply to put downs).

 

Remember the key is to stand up for yourself by being assertive – this is the most effective way of putting them in their place and avoids unnecessary conflict or an unhealthy competition between one another’s put downs, which only serves to encourage and escalate the unwanted behavior.

 

Then try to commit some standard responses to put downs for the future so you are prepared if it happens again.

 

Will you memorize some standard responses in case you receive a put down in future? Do you feel more prepared and better able to deal with put downs following the role play? Please share your thoughts in the comments below to gain encouragement, insight and support from our community, we’d love to hear from you.
