Seminar Description

Most human beings, including the vast majority of mental health professionals, struggle with at least one or common forms of social anxiety, including:

  • Shyness
  • Public Speaking Anxiety
  • Test Anxiety
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Shy Bladder / Bowel Syndrome

I’ve had them all, and more! That’s why I LOVE treating social anxiety. Whatever the patient has, I can say, “I know from personal experience how awful that is. And what a joy it’s going to show you how to defeat your fears!”
In this workshop I will illustrate how to heal your patients (and yourself) quickly from social anxiety: You’ll learn how to

  • Diagnose social anxiety quickly and accurately
  • Assess session-by-session progress and track therapeutic empathy
  • Develop world class empathy skills and how to find out how your patients see you!
  • Reduce patient resistance to Interpersonal Exposure Techniques with Dangling the Carrot, the Gentle Ultimatum, and Sitting with Open Hands.
  • Identify the distorted thoughts that trigger social anxiety.
  • Smash those thoughts with powerful cognitive therapy techniques like the Downward Arrow, the What-If Technique, the Double Standard, the Cost-Benefit Analysis, the Externalization of Voices, Reattribution, the Hidden Emotion Technique, and more.
  • Pinpoint and modify the Self-Defeating Beliefs that trigger social anxiety, such as
    • The Spotlight Fallacy
    • The Brushfire Fallacy
    • The Approval Addiction
    • The Love Addiction

You will also learn how to use powerful and mind-blowing Interpersonal Exposure Techniques such as

  • Smile and Hello Practice
  • Talk Show Host
  • Flirting Training
  • Rejection Practice
  • Self-Disclosure
  • Survey Technique
  • Shame-Attacking Exercises
  • Feared Fantasy
  • And much more


Participants will be better able to: 
· Assess patient progress within and between sessions
· Track the therapeutic alliance at every session
· Reduce the resistance that often sabotages the treatment of social anxiety
· Individualize the treatment for every patient
· Identify your patient’s fears
