Social phobia, also known as social anxiety disorder, is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by intense fear and anxiety in social situations and can greatly impact a person's quality of life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a well-established and evidence-based approach that has been shown to be effective in treating social phobia. It involves working with a therapist to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to the phobia.
Prague English Psychology Services is starting a ten week group therapy program to help people with social anxiety disorder. The group will follow the protocol outlined in the book, Managing Social Anxiety: A Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Approach (Third Edition), by Debra A. Hope, Richard G. Heimberg, and Cynthia L. Turk. An electronic copy of this book will be provided to clients participating in the group.
This treatment group is designed to help individuals with social anxiety learn new coping skills and strategies to manage their symptoms. The group will be led by a trained and experienced psychotherapist who specialize in treating anxiety disorders and depression. Group members will have the opportunity to learn from one another and gain support from others who are also dealing with similar issues, and to engage in practice “exposure trials” both in and outside of the group.
This group is open to adults 18 and older who have been diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. The group will meet weekly for 10 weeks, with each session lasting 2 hours. Participants will have an individual, extended diagnostic session with the group leader before the first meeting to confirm eligibility for participation.
Space is very limited, and confirmation of the diagnosis of Social Anxiety Disorder must be confirmed prior to the start of the group and the presence of comorbid disorders may impact eligibility to participate. For more information, click the “Schedule a Free Consultation” button below.
