New CCI Consumer Modules for Social Anxiety Now Online!

The Centre for Clinical Interventions (CCI) is pleased to announce the release of our latest set of consumer modules  Stepping Out of Social Anxiety.  Since the 2003 release of CCI’s original set of social anxiety modules,Shy No Longer, CCI’s social anxiety treatment program has evolved considerably to reflect the state-of-the-art of the theoretical and empirical literature, and the contributions of CCI’s own applied clinical research program. This culminated in our recent randomised controlled trial which demonstrated that our imagery-enhanced and verbally-based group CBT programs for social anxiety both had effect sizes comparable to the largest effects found in the literature to date.

Stepping Out of Social Anxietypresents much of the core content of these programs, in a format conducive to consumers working through them independently or with the assistance of a mental health professional. Some of the major changes to the 2003 modules include:
·       Use of behavioural experiments rather than a graded exposure approach to engaging in feared social situations;
·       Strategies addressing the contribution of safety behaviours and unhelpful attention focusing in maintaining social anxiety;
·       Use of video feedback;
·       Incorporation of mental imagery.
