Coping and Thriving with the Reality of Social Anxiety
Eric Goodman

Many people walk around with a secret - they experience social anxiety! At the same time, they are bombarded by messages from books, articles and gurus that lead them to believe that social anxiety is a disease that needs to be cured. Consequently, along with social anxiety, they carry shame - believing that there is something wrong with them that must be fixed before they can live a 'normal' life. Often, they are waiting for the magical day when their social anxiety vanishes forever before pursuing their social goals, such as increasing friendships, finding a romantic partner or advancing in their career.

The problem is that social anxiety is normal and, to some degree, it will remain a lifelong companion. SOCIAL COURAGE presents a step-by-step, structured programme for minimising suffering in the face of social anxiety, while giving readers the tools to boldly go towards their social goals. It combines strategies from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion-Focused Therapy to form 'CBT 2.0', to help readers cope and thrive with anxious thoughts and emotions using practical exercises and case studies. Whether readers are struggling with social anxiety of phobic proportions or are just held back when it comes to public speaking or meeting a specific social goal, SOCIAL COURAGE presents a path forward while minimising suffering along the way.
