[Abstract] The purpose of this study is to examine how the university students increased their understanding about“ equality” in communication, that is balanced respects for self and others, by participating in the assertiveness-training(AT). The descriptions in their reflection papers were analyzed. The results show that, at relatively early stages of the training, they became to appreciate their own rights to express their feelings and requests. This suggests the effectiveness of AT to reduce over-adaptation tendency by encouraging self-expression. In addition, participants became to believe the possibility that the balanced respects for self and others could be achieved in everyday communication, by knowing some skills, such as reducing own request to a definite and concrete one. However, it is found that accepting the mutual differences in values, framing the problem they faced with balanced respects for self and others, and acknowledging self-responsibility for the problem were not fully acquired, and that the training program needs some improvements for the better understanding about“ equality” in communication.
