Treatment of Social Anxiety at the CTSA

The Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety offers cognitive-behavioral therapy for social phobia. Techniques used in this therapy include examining fearful thoughts, social skills training, and practicing social interactions. Medications may be used by themselves or in combination with cognitive-behavioral therapy in the treatment of social phobia.

Eligibility for these programs is determined through a telephone call with Center staff, and through an initial evaluation with one of the Center's psychologists.
