REBT can work very well with very bright people. Good brain power can help certain people analyze more quickly the ways in which their thinking is illogical when they are upset. However, just because you have the potential to quickly see the irrational qualities of your thinking, doesn’t mean you will use your potential to help yourself. Many very bright people are more motivated to argue the “rightness” of their beliefs than to consider they might be wrong. Over the years, REBT methods have been adopted for children as young as five or six years old, and even for the learning-impaired. Rational emotive behavior therapists are trained to tailor REBT to meet the wide variety of intellectual, cognitive-developmental and other personal characteristics of clients.

Social anxiety is a common form of anxiety and can significantly interfere with the quality of life of many individuals. This 10 week social anxiety group will be based on the principles of Rational-Emotive & Cognitive Behavior Therapy (RE&CBT). Group members will learn to identify, debate, and replace their unhelpful thinking and beliefs that lead to social anxiety and to systematically confront their anxiety triggers. In a supportive atmosphere, group members will be able to discuss their unique difficulties with social anxiety and set personal goals. In group exercises and role plays will be utilized to prepare members to confront their fears outside of the office. Behavioral homework assignments will be collaboratively generated and reviewed on a weekly basis.
