We are pleased to announce the recent release of our latest set of consumer modules Stepping Out of Social Anxiety. Since the 2003 release of CCI’s original set of social anxiety modules, Shy No Longer, CCI’s social anxiety treatment program has evolved considerably, to reflect the state-of-the-art of the theoretical and empirical literature, and the contributions of CCI’s own applied clinical research program. This culminated in our recent randomised controlled trial which demonstrated that our imagery-enhanced and verbally-based group CBT programs for social anxiety both had effect sizes comparable to the largest effects found in the literature to date. Stepping Out of Social Anxiety presents much of the core content of these programs, in a format conducive to consumers working through them independently or with the assistance of a mental health professional. Some of the major changes to the 2003 modules include the use of behavioural experiments rather than a graded exposure approach to engaging in feared social situations, strategies addressing the contribution of safety behaviours and unhelpful attention focusing in maintaining social anxiety, the use of video feedback, and the incorporation of mental imagery.
You can find this new set of modules here.
