The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook for Teens : CBT and ACT skills to Help You Build Social Confidence
The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook for Teens offers a complete program based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) for helping teens break free from social anxiety and stop worrying about what others think. This book helps teens come to see that painful emotions, such as embarrassment, are inevitable and survivable. The comic-strip-style illustrations, exercises, and worksheets in this book address all aspects of social anxiety, from missing out on high school dances to going to job interviews. It also includes help for teens who have anxiety about blushing in public and speaking up in class.
