I-statements are a way of focusing on you and expressing your feelings in a positive way about how a situation affected you. I-statements clearly express what you want the other person to know without accusing them or placing blame.
This worksheet provides a reference and helps the reader to understand both "You" and "I" statements, and the implications for both modes of communication. It also includes exercises that help clients find instances where they use You-statements today and practice using I-statements instead.
Help your clients to understand the benefits of I-statements and better communicate with friends, family, colleagues and others.
