I don’t have to tell you that social anxiety is very different from simple shyness. It is much more debilitating and extremely common. It is estimated that 1 in 8 of the population suffers from it. Because it often co-exists with other psychological problems that 1 in 8 figure is a very conservative estimate of how many of your current clients are suffering from it.
Have you assessed it?
Do you know how?
Would you know how to treat it even if you were able to identify it?
Our training module on WORKING WITH SOCIAL ANXIETY (2 DAYS) on 28 - 29 April 2016 will skill you up to do just that.
Book here: http://www.skillsdevelopment.co.uk/cbt_seminars.php?courseid=144
It’s two days of detailed explanation, demonstrations and practice.
- You’ll become familiar with Beck’s as well as Clark & Wells’ models.
- You’re learn where your clients’ problems primarily lie – with the “Anticipatory Phase”, with “Situational Exposure” or with “Post Event Processing”
- You’ll understand how your clients’ “inhibitory” and “safety behaviours” often make their problems worse – and simple things you can do to help them
- You’ll learn how your clients’ feelings of humiliation and shame develop and how you can begin to reverse them
- You’ll be able to teach your client how to achieve Attentional Focus Shift which enables them to radically change their perspective on social situations
- You’ll be able to collaboratively develop “Social Mishap Exposures” with your clients to radically reduce their anxiety in social situations as well as developing other specific social anxiety “Behavioural Experiments” to help them moderate unhelpful assumptions and beliefs.
So don’t delay. Places are limited.
