"Build Your Social Confidence": A Social Anxiety Group for College Students
Damer, Diana E.; Latimer, Kelsey M.; Porter, Sarah H.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v35 n1 p7-22 Mar 2010
Social anxiety, a common concern among college students, carries significant negative consequences. Group therapy is an efficient and cost-effective way to provide treatment, and cognitive-behavioral group therapy (CBGT; Heimberg & Becker, 2002) is the most widely researched and empirically supported treatment for persons with social anxiety disorder. In this article, a session-by-session description of a social anxiety group designed specifically for college students is presented. The protocol combines elements from Heimberg and Becker's CBGT model along with social skills training, Padesky's (1997) "assertive defense of the self" intervention, and an interpersonal process component.
