Webinar Description

Social anxiety disorder is a prevalent mental health condition that can significantly impact individuals' well-being and functioning. This advanced-level workshop offers professionals an opportunity to deepen their understanding and refine their skills in addressing social anxiety using evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques.

This session delves into the nuanced complexities of social anxiety, exploring its symptoms, impact, and differentiation from other related concepts such as introversion and shyness. Attendees will gain insights into the distinct challenges faced by vulnerable populations, including those within the Jewish community and the influence of modern social media dynamics.

A central focus of this workshop is to equip participants with the ability to comprehensively address the core fears underpinning social anxiety—fear of rejection and fear of judgment. Through a structured approach, attendees will learn how to identify and reframe maladaptive thought patterns, employing cognitive restructuring strategies that empower clients to challenge negative self-perceptions.

The curriculum extends to practical applications of cognitive-behavioral interventions, emphasizing the role of behavioral experiments (exposures) to desensitize individuals to anxiety-provoking situations. Attendees will leave with a sophisticated toolkit to support clients in navigating social interactions with greater ease and confidence.

With a firm grounding in empirical research and clinical insights, this session aims to elevate participants' therapeutic competence in working with social anxiety. Through an interactive learning experience, attendees will strengthen their ability to apply advanced CBT techniques, enabling them to offer more effective interventions to individuals struggling with social anxiety.
