TAKE THE SOCIAL ANXIETY TEST:
1. Do you feel intense anxiety when meeting
asking for what you want from others (a raise, a date,
standing in a crowd, or speaking in public?
2. Do you avoid these and other social situations?
3. Do you think about how people judge you? Do you work harder than others to please people or avoid
confrontation to ensure a positive impression?
4. Does your anxiety or avoidance prevent
you from making friends, progressing in your career, forming romantic relationships, or speaking in public?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have social anxiety, a condition shared by millions of
Americans. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IT IS VERY TREATABLE through cognitive-behavioral therapy, which helps you overcome your
anxiety gradually in small steps and at a pace you feel comfortable with. It does not require long term psychotherapy and
MIGHT NOT INVOLVE MEDICATION (despite what drug company commercials might tell you).
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR SOCIAL ANXIETY?
The good news is that social anxiety
is very treatable, and you might not need medication at all. Hundreds of studies support that the most effective treatment
for social anxiety is a special type of behavior therapy, known as "Gradual Exposure Therapy." Gradual exposure
enables sufferers to very gradually overcome their fears and avoidant behavior at a pace THEY choose and are comfortable with,
so they are never overwhelmed. Results are achieved in a matter of months not years. Gradual exposure is more effective than
medication or any other kind of therapy. Medication provides only temporary or partial relief and has side effects; symptoms
just come back when you end the medication. Gradual exposure provides permanent relief, essentially eliminating excessive
social anxiety forever and restoring a normal life in which clients are more relaxed and confident in social situations. Most
of my clients benefit from exposure therapy with no medication at all. Many people's lives are transformed, getting the jobs
and relationships they deserve but never thought possible until completing treatment.
HOW DO I FIND A THERAPIST TO TREAT MY SOCIAL ANXIETY?
I practice in Manhattan
(34th, near the Empire State Bldg. and Macy's), as well as Rockland County, and New Jersey, and would be happy to arrange
an appointment for you or I can offer you a free phone consultation at 212-726-2390. If you live outside of the New York metropolitan
area, you can find a local therapist by contacting the Association for the Advancement Of Behavior Therapy (www.aabt.org)
in Manhattan, New York City. Ask them for a social anxiety (or social phobia) specialist in your area. If they don't have
someone in your area, ask them if they know of a similar organization in your region that could make a referral to you. Such
organizations would have words such as "Anxiety," "Fear," "Cognitive Therapy," or "Behavior
Therapy" in their titles. Once they give you the names, you have to call and interview the therapists by phone.
THERE ARE 2 TEST QUESTIONS YOU MUST ASK A THERAPIST: (1) Is gradual exposure therapy
the main technique they use? If they don't, forget about using them. They might say they "talk" about it and help
clients "see things more rationally," which is helpful, but that is no substitute for gradual exposure. And (2)
How many people have they SUCCESSFULLY treated FOR SOCIAL ANXIETY? They should have treated at least several people, the people
should not longer have severe social anxiety or should not be taking medication any more. They should NOT say they just helped
people "live with" their social anxiety better. If you can't find anyone in your area, I do offer phone sessions
for those outside of the New York Metropolitan area. It's not ideal, but it's a lot better than going to someone who is not
an expert on social anxiety and gradual exposure. I can be reached at 212-726-2390.
