Young Adult Social Anxiety Groups Summer 2018

Group Therapy Program for Young Adults with Social Anxiety

The Columbia University Clinic for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CUCARD) is offering two separate summer groups for young adults (age 18-28) with anxiety.

The first group will start at the end of June and meet on Tuesdays from 6-7:30pm. The second group will meet intensively in August.

 

CBGT is a goal-directed and semi-structured therapy. The groups involve:

· Education about the nature of anxiety and cognitive behavioral therapy

· Developing individualized treatment goals for each participant

· Building and reinforcing social skills as well as problem solving skills

· Assertiveness training

· Training in identification and challenging of maladaptive thought patterns

· Exposure to personally relevant anxiety-provoking situations and scenarios in a supportive setting

· Assistance with important life transitions
