Book Description
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is common and often underdiagnosed. It can interfere with school or work, and may cause difficulty with close relationships. In repeated trials, cognitive-behavioral therapy has proven the most effective treatment for this disorder.

Written by the developers of an empirically supported and effective CBT program for treating Social Anxiety Disorder, this guide includes all the information and materials necessary to implement successful treatment. The therapeutic technique described in this book is research-based with a proven success rate, and can be used with those clients currently taking medication, as well as those who aren"t.

Using a model that focuses on how social anxiety is maintained rather than on how it develops, the renowned authors provide clinicians with step-by-step instructions for teaching their clients important skills that have been scientifically tested and shown to be effective in treating Social Anxiety Disorder. The guide focuses on using cognitive restructuring techniques, along with in vivo exposure to help break the cycle of anxiety.

Complete with session outlines, key concepts, case vignettes and strategies for dealing with problems, this user-friendly guide is a dependable resource that no clinician can do without.
