Social Anxiety and Shyness Support Group for Adults!

Posted by: admin

October 14th, 2011 >> Social Anxiety and Shyness

New Social Anxiety and Shyness Support Group for Adults. Facilitated by Anita Avedian, MFT. Co-ed group is now forming. Start date for the group is scheduled for Tuesday, October 25. This group will either meet at 12 or 6:30 PM. Cognitive-Behavioral, TFT and EFT are used. $225 fee is prepaid monthly. Free 30-minute intake prior to entering the group. Contact Anita Avedian at (818) 426-2495 for further information.

The Social Anxiety and Shyness Support group is designed to help socially anxious and shy individuals to work through their discomfort with social settings. If you suffer with social anxiety and/or shyness, you may benefit from this group.  You may find yourself avoiding social situations, which oftentimes interferes with relationships and daily activities. You may avoid situations such as social events with work, interviews, or having friends over for dinner.

Expressing your opinion can be difficult since you may fear being judged by others.  In this group, you will have the opportunity to be in a safe environment where you could learn about social anxiety and the skills to help you work through difficult situations. By participating in this group, you will have the opportunity to practice the newly learned skills within the group, as well as with your surroundings.  In time, goals will be set to practice learned skills outside of the group to help you work through your social anxiety. There are field trips as part of the group where you may be challenged to approach people in a public setting. Behavioral work is necessary when trying to treat social anxiety and social phobia.

If you do have a PPO plan through your insurance, I can provide a superbill for you to receive reimbursement. If you have any questions about this group, please contact me at (818) 426-2495 or email at

Everyone is afraid of something. This most fundamental, critical rule of human existence may be among the oldest reasons for the human need to socially interact. To a certain extent, it is arguable that all society is based on the foundation that we are playing off each other’s fears. However, while it is normal for everyone to have fears, not everyone has a phobia. The phobia, which is essentially an unreasonable fear that is firmly rooted in a person’s psychology, can sometimes be difficult to spot. In general, they don’t so much affect a person’s social and professional standing as other disorders might. Yet, there are some people that must deal with the prospect of having to face a phobia at work on a daily basis.:
