At times we all struggle to be the best versions of ourselves.
- Many of us have found challenges with:
- Initiating conversations with prospective dates
- Asserting ourselves at home, work, or at school
- Making small talk
- Presentations or public speaking situations
- Handling confrontations
- Overcoming feelings of shyness and self-counsciousness
At the Institute, we have over four decades of experience in helping clients overcome these challenges through guidance from our professional staff of fellows and psychologists specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral therapy.
The Social Anxiety Treatment Center is now offering groups and group workshops for individuals who wish to develop strong social strategies to conquer feelings of low self-esteem, shyness, lack of assertiveness and anxiety around performance situations like public speaking or dating situations. We will help pariticpants learn to navigate unfamiliar situations with greater confidence and ease.\
Research has demonstrated that group settings are the most effective way to help individuals overcome these aforementioned difficulties.
- Our approaches include:
- Skill-building exercises and techniques ( role playing and behavioral rehearsal)
- Group and one-on-one feedback, including the use of video tape
- “Live” interactive experiences designed to quickly build confidence (both simulated and real-time)
- Techniques for overcoming self-defeating and self-doubting self-talk and thoughts
- Developing greater social awareness and sensitivity to others
- Platform for testing newly acquired social skills with compassionate feedback
