Social Anxiety Groups for Adolescents and Young Adults (Fall 2022)

Tuesdays 10/4-12/20

5:00pm - 6:30pm

  Intake | 914-385-1150, Option 1 |

We are excited to offer our social anxiety group program again in person! This program is designed to help adolescents and young adults manage anxiety, overcome suffering, and boost their comfort, confidence, engagement and competence in social and public situations.

The group uses CBT strategies to help participants gain a better understanding of social anxiety, identify and challenge worry thoughts experienced in social situations, learn skills to promote relaxation, enhance conversational and assertiveness skills, and face fears with practice of these skills in different real-life activities.

We will be running two groups:

  • One for high school students (aged 13-18)
  • One for young adults (aged 18-26)

Both groups meet from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays from Oct. 4 — Dec. 20, 2022. The groups will take place in person at our White Plains office: 1 North Broadway, Suite 704, White Plains, NY 10601.

If you experience:

  • Worry about what others are thinking of you

  • Fear and panic about attending parties or raising your hand in class

  • Avoidance of social situations

  • Loneliness and feeling disconnected from peers

...then you may benefit from this social anxiety group!

In this group, participants will learn to:

  • Manage anxiety in social settings through practice and real-life activities

  • Develop strategies for challenging worry thoughts experienced in social situations

  • Enhance their conversational skills including starting, maintaining and ending conversations

  • Learn assertiveness skills and learn to say no effectively
