Most people have experienced some sort of social anxiety, and generally are fine in most situations.
However, for others, it can occur just thinking about being around other people. In some instances, social anxiety is triggered by a past event, leaving a person to believe ALL social experiences are going to be bad.
In this video on Challenging Your Negative Thoughts in Social Anxiety, I’ll look at how we can challenge the thoughts that lead to this anxiety, identify the trigger and the thoughts that follow, how we can use mental imagery to build a clearer picture of the situation, and look at being more specific about what we fear.
