The National Social Anxiety Center (NSAC) conducted this one-hour clinical education webinar on February 4, 2022. In it, NSAC Cochair Larry Cohen discusses his views as to the complementary nature of the several cognitive-behavioral therapy models for social anxiety, and how to integrate them so as to best meet the needs of particular clients. Following his half-hour presentation, four other NSAC representatives share their views about integrating the different models, as well as the strengths of the particular model they are representing. This is part 2 of a two-part webinar. The first part discusses four of the major CBT models in greater detail.
(In addition, NSAC conducted an in-depth, 3-hour training seminar on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies for Social Anxiety Disorder: An Integrative Strategy, complete with many client worksheets and instructional handouts.)
These are the four CBT approaches to treating social anxiety, as presented by representatives of NSAC regional clinics.
