Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step

By | October 11, 2017
Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step

This book contains the handouts accompanying the audio / video series “Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step.”

Each handout is a cognitive strategy that will reduce social anxiety in conjunction with the therapy series itself. The book and its strategies helps you to develop a full arsenal of skills for quieting negative thoughts, changing negative thinking habits, and learning to feel less anxious. You are in control of this happening — and the goal of overcoming social anxiety is to teach you, step by step, HOW TO accomplish this goal.

With this book of handouts, you’ll learn how to:

• Challenge automatic negative thoughts and beliefs
• Develop rational, helpful thoughts and belief systems
• Calm yourself down in social situations
• Accept yourself for who you are
• Feel empowered and in control of your life

Our hope is that this new series will be used by millions of people with social anxiety disorder, as they begin learning the cognitive strategies that will help them get better. The brain’s “neuroplasticity” is amazing, and you can learn to think, believe, and feel rationally, instead of letting anxiety cripple your life. Learning to think, believe, and act on rational beliefs changes your life.

    This review is from: Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step (Paperback)
    Dr. Richards’ ‘Overcoming Social Anxiety’ is a simple, easy to follow guide to (a) better understand what social anxiety is and (b) learning strategies to overcome it.

    Since I purchased the book, I have learnt so much more about myself and this devastating condition that has greatly affected my life for most of my life. Dr. Richards’ explanations of the causes of social anxiety and his tried and tested strategies to overcome social anxiety are fairly easy to learn and practice, and they have proved to work or me. They have even ‘spilled-over’ and benefited other aspects of my life.

    Social anxiety is a terrible condition that no one deserves to live with. Dr. Richards’ therapy is the best way that I have encountered to overcome it.

    As a person who has battled with social anxiety for many years, I found this book pretty helpful. I have heard this before, but this book reminds you that the negative thinking patterns are actually something real, in your brain, by way of neural pathways and not something you’re imagining. With enough practice of turning your negative thoughts into positive ones through RATIONAL thinking, you can literally create new neural pathways that will eventually make rational, positive thoughts switch on much easier than the negative ones that have been flooding your mind for years.
    The book is not all about neural pathways and the brain; don’t worry, you won’t be bored by that. It explains what CBT is, how it works, and steps you can take to manage your social anxiety. I only gave the book 4 stars because I felt that a lot of the subject matter could have been grouped together better; I found some of it scattered in different places. (I purchased the E-book version)
    Thanks, Lizzie

    Overall extensive relief from Social Anxiety, I’m enjoying the online series more, but the book is part of it though! After 2 months (sessions 1 through 8) of actively studying the materials – I am feeling a genuine uplift in my mood. It’s similar to taking an antidepressant!
    Nooooooooooooo!!! The online series with audio is so much better, it really tells you how you should really study and you won’t confuse the handouts! And I bet you’ll love hearing Dr. Richards’ audio because he shares his own stories and really gives you a whole lot of info on each session and social anxiety! And also group therapy is recommended!
