Is the CBT for Social Anxiety Group Right for Me?

People with social anxiety often worry about seeming incompetent, unintelligent, or awkward in social situations. Common symptoms include heart pounding, shaking, sweating, dry mouth, or “blanking out”. People with social anxiety may continue to worry about how they came across to others long after the event is over. This group is designed to help you build skills to counter the kinds of effects.

If you think social anxiety is negatively affecting your relationships, your work, or your overall mental health, this group might be the next step for you. Clinicians at the University Psychological Clinic at MARI use evidence-based group therapy to help participants learn to identify and shift unhealthy thinking patterns. You will build coping skills and increase confidence in a supportive environment and at your own pace.
