Group Therapy Program for Adults (ages 29 and over) with Social Anxiety
The Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD) is pleased to announce a cognitive behavioral group therapy for adults who have experienced difficulty in social situations due to anxiety, avoidance, or social skills deficits.
Groups focus on:
· Building coping skills - relaxation training, role playing, feedback
· Exposure exercises to reduce anxiety in social situations
· Cognitive re-framing to challenge anxious thoughts
· Discussion about common concerns such as work-related anxieties, making meaningful relationships, dealing with social media, and conversing with colleagues
Individuals will learn to:
· Create concrete social goals to work toward
· Cope with the physical symptoms of anxiety
· Develop skills to identify and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns
· Problem-solve and assert themselves in social situations
· Use feedback to understand consequences of specific social interactions
