Social Anxiety ~ Adult Group


At CBC’s Clinical and Wellness Centers we are committed to providing compassionate evidence-based treatment programs to address a wide range of emotional, behavioral, lifestyle management and personal development issues.

Our therapists practice leading edge treatments based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), with our primary goal to create positive and enduring change for all of our clients.

The Adult Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Social Anxiety (CBT-SA) Group

To complement individual therapy or act as a stand-alone treatment, CBC offers social anxiety group treatment. The group setting provides a unique opportunity to gain exposure to social situations that elicit anxiety and practice newly acquired skills in vivo, with coaching and feedback from skilled clinicians and supportive peers.  All groups are offered in our White Plains location.

The CBT-SA program, which runs for approximately 12 weeks, is designed to benefit adults (18 years and older) who experience anxiety or discomfort in social settings such as work, with friends/family, dating, when participating in hobbies or sports, or when performing in public.  Group sessions allow members to gain a better understanding of social anxiety, develop skills to catch, check, and change worry thoughts that arouse anxiety in social situations, and rehearse skills in simulated and real-life social situations.

Check our calendar for upcoming classes.
