Group Treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder

April 9, 2012

Group based cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is one of the most successful form of treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD). Groups are one of the most feared of situations for someone with SAD. However these programs are run in a way that considers the high levels of initial anxiety. They provide a safe environment to begin to explore and master anxiety. They often slowly introduce the individuals involved in the group to exercises and therapeutic encounters that help them to better manage their anxiety and improve confidence and self efficacy in social situations.

Some other advantages of group CBT include:

– Sharing experiences with SAD with others who suffer with it

– Learn strategies from others and share successes and learning CBT techniques

– Cost effective form of treatment

– Provides a community for support
