One of REBT’s favorite maxims (first expressed by Reinhold Neibuhr) is: “Grant me the courage to change the things I can change, the serenity to accept those that I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.” REBT seeks to empower individuals both by helping them more effectively handle their own painful emotions, and by enabling them to change their own behavior and improve their world where possible. When you get too upset, it is much more difficult to behave in constructive ways. By gaining better control over upsetting emotions, you become far more able to act assertively to change bad outside circumstances.

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.
