Cognitive–Behavioral Understanding of Social Anxiety Disorder

Mar 31, 2019 10:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 12:00pm

Description

Social anxiety disorder affects up to 13% of the U.S. population, but individuals go an average of 15 years before receiving treatment. This results in a lot of missed opportunities for those who suffer from the social, academic, and work impairment associated with the disorder. This session focuses on a cognitive–behavioral understanding of the disorder and the schemas and self-talk that perpetuate impairment. Attendees will be provided with a variety of interventions used to help manage social anxiety disorder.

  • Participants will learn how schemas and underlying core beliefs perpetuate Social Anxiety Disorder and impact those who struggle with it.
  • Participants will acquire specific tools and interventions to use when treating social anxiety and become familiar with their implementation.
  • Participants will apply understanding of their newly-acquired interventions by participating in self-application activities involving their new resources.

Speaker(s):

  • Brad A. Imhoff, PhD, Assistant Professor of Counseling, Liberty University
