Spring 2019 Mindfulness and Acceptance Skills for Social Anxiety Group

Mindfulness and Acceptance Skills for Social Anxiety Group

This group, facilitated by the dynamic and skillful ACT expert and Registered Psychotherapist Kathryn Palmer, M.Ed., will give you a new perspective and a crucial skill set for dealing with shyness and social anxiety by helping you open up to difficult thoughts and feelings while doing what really matters to you. Developed by Dr. Jan Fleming and Dr. Nancy Kocovski, researchers and authors of The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Social Anxiety & Shyness, this evidence-based program combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with treatment components drawn from Mindfulness- Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). You will receive a workbook and have the opportunity to practice new skills during the group and between meetings.

By the end of this 8-week program, you can expect to:

  • Learn how to shift from “Safety Mode” to “Vital-Action Mode”
  • Develop mindfulness skills to help change the way you relate to uncomfortable thoughts and feelings.
  • Create greater distance between you and your anxious thoughts.
  • Have a more concrete understanding of your values.
  • Learn how to set and work towards realistic goals in social situations.
