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.
