Forming Our Anxiety Team

Our anxiety team is beginning to form, and our first official week is next week.  We have five great, talented volunteers and people doing internships for various universities and for admittance to graduate schools.  A big thank you to our new Anxiety Team.  We will be putting together the new therapy and the new website modules that will be necessary to help more people over the internet.  

Also, thanks to our Facebook community for always encourging and motivating us!  

Published the January  Social Anxiety Mailing List.  The mailing list carries announcements, messages from Dr. Richards, stories of people overcoming social anxiety, and news about social anxiety therapy groups.    

Our Twitterfeed is now being posted on this site and on The Anxiety Network website.  The message is created in our Facebook social anxiety community and is picked up by Twitter.  The Twitterfeed then goes to this site and The Anxiety Network.

The Social Anxiety Association

The Social Anxiety Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1997 to meet the growing needs of people with social anxiety.  The SAA became inactive for several years due to lack of resources.  We are in the process of re-doing our website, listing all active, structured CBT groups for social anxiety, and renewing all our licenses.  Major changes will be happening by the end of 2013.  We publish new web content -- concerning social anxiety -- almost daily on the site now.

The Social Anxiety Institute is the largest website on the internet about social anxiety disorder (social phobia). Therapy programs have run at the Institute full-time since 1994.  Major new help for overcoming social anxiety is under development and will be introduced in 2013. 

For treatment: Overcoming social anxiety: Step by Step   A structured guide to overcoming social anxiety (a "How to" guide to get over social anxiety).

The Anxiety Network explains and describes five major anxiety disorders.

Guidelines for listing social anxiety groups on this site.  We cannot officially endorse groups, so check them out thoroughly.  We ask that they be groups that are operating, have a definite leader, and are thoroughly structured.  Social anxiety therapy groups are very different than the groups that operate for other mental health conditions.
