Description - The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook by Martin M. Antony

The second-most common anxiety disorder, social phobia will affect 12 percent of the population at some point in their lives. In our interconnected social world, this problem is especially debilitating. It presents challenges in all aspects of sufferers' lives, from family and intimate relationships to professional development and career satisfaction. This revised edition of a New Harbinger classic develops a clear and effective self-help programme - based on clinically proven cognitive behaviour therapy - that readers can use to relieve social anxiety and start making meaningful connections to the people in their lives. New to this edition are chapters on the use of mindfulness and acceptance techniques for overcoming social anxiety. All chapters have been reviewed and brought up to date with current research. The reference section is all new, directing readers to the most current information available in the field.
