The study sample consisted of (30) students from the seventh and eighth grades from the Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq Basic School for Boys who obtained high scores on the scale of being a victim, and they were randomly distributed into two groups: an experimental group that included (15) students who were subjected to assertiveness training and a control group. It included (15) students who were not subjected to assertiveness training, and to achieve the objectives of the study, the social  efficacy scale was used. Arithmetic averages, standard deviations, and the "T" test were used to process the statistical data.
