Event description

Description

Do you worry about looking foolish or being noticed in social situations?

Avoid talking to people or doing the things you want to do because of fear and self-doubt?

Struggle to meet new people or reach your full potential at school or work because of the uncomfortable thoughts and feelings that get in the way?

This group will give you a new perspective on shyness and social anxiety by helping you open up to difficult thoughts and feelings while doing what really matters to you.

** Early bird rate available until December 6th 2018**

The winter 2019 Mindfulness and Acceptance-Based Group for Social Anxiety will be led by Registered Psychotherapist Kathryn Palmer M.Ed, RP, C.C.C.

This group was developed by Dr. Jan Fleming and Dr. Nancy Kocovski, researchers and authors of The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Social Anxiety & Shyness. This evidence-based program combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with treatment components drawn from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). You will receive a workbook and have the opportunity to practice new skills during the group and between meetings.

By the end of this 10-week program, you can expect to:
• Learn how to shift from “Safety Mode” to “Vital-Action Mode”
• Develop mindfulness skills to help change the way you relate to uncomfortable thoughts and feelings.
• Create greater distance between you and your anxious thoughts.
• Have a more concrete understanding of your values.
• Learn how to set and work towards realistic goals in social situations.
