Links to Social Anxiety Groups
In fulfilling our mission statement, we want to encourage active, structured, cognitive-behavioral groups get started and continue. We want to encourage groups that help people overcome social anxiety.
Active, Currently Operating CBT Groups for Social Anxiety
All of these groups use the active, structured therapy series "Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step". They are all closed groups, meaning they have a beginning and an ending date. Later strategies build on earlier strategies, making them more effective.
The Social Anxiety Institute in Phoenix: We run three 14-week groups every year. This is an all-day Saturday group, with behavioral and social activities daily. Once or twice a year we run an international group, three weeks in length, for people who have completed the audio series "Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step". Currently, Dr. Richards runs all of these groups.
