Do you want to find the solution to eliminate social anxiety disorder, how to overcome shyness, improve your social skills increasing your self-esteem? If yes, then keep reading... While social anxiety is part of every human being's life and is even an important factor in early childhood development, a chronic and constant anxiety in social settings is diagnosed as a mental disorder. There is a correlation showing that social anxiety tends to run in families. We all know the feeling of being nervous or uncomfortable in a social situation or setting. Maybe you've clammed up when meeting someone new or your palms get sweat before making a big presentation, or your stomach is knotting and rumbling at the thought of doing anything or indulging in any task that involves interacting with people, or communicating. Public speaking or walking into a room full of strangers isn't exactly thrilling for everybody, but most people can get through it. If you have a social anxiety disorder, though, the stress of these situations is too much to handle. You might avoid all social contact because things that other people consider as "normal" -- like making small talk and eye contact -- make you feel so uncomfortable. All aspects of your life, not just the social life, could start to fall apart. Social anxiety disorder is one of the most common mental disorders we have. Like it is called, it is the anxiety that comes with social settings and situations. So if you have it, there's hope. This book gives a comprehensive guide on the following: Rejection and Shyness Understanding anxiety and social anxiety Difference between anxiety and social anxiety Causes and symptoms of social anxiety Dealing with the causes How fear develop into anxiety Stuck in shyness How to overcome shyness Some ways to overcome shyness How social anxiety affects the brain Managing social anxiety Defining the Cognitive Thinking Errors Live a Little! Avoid and Overcome Negativity Do Some Cognitive Restructuring Boost your self-esteem ... AND MORE!!! People with social anxiety are generally described as having a very high level of shyness. We all feel a bit shy or nervous at times but some people feel it more extremely. For these people, it can be very debilitating. It affects their ability to go out and socialize, to meet new people, to get involved in new things. It may even start to affect their ability to go to work or school. This group of people are often labeled as introverts as opposed to extroverts. In the past, it has been thought that only 25% of the US population considered themselves introverts, but a sample taken in the late 1990s showed that it is in reality closer to 50%. The reason we often think that extroverts are more common is that introverts often can disguise themselves as extroverts. While feeling incredibly uncomfortable being outgoing, they are still able to put on a brave face and be perceived by others as not being shy. What are you waiting for? Click buy now!!!!!

Many children are naturally shy but extreme shyness and social anxiety can become a major childhood problem, leading to avoidance of school, difficulty in making friends and even developing into social anxiety in adulthood. In Overcoming Your Child's Shyness and Social Anxiety, child psychologists Lucy Willetts and Cathy Creswell explain how parents can help a shy child learn to challenge their thoughts and behaviour patterns and learn to participate confidently in every aspect of their lives. Based on clinically proven cognitive behavioural principles, the book explains what causes shyness, how to identify social anxiety in your child (sometimes masked by anger or stubbornness) and how to gradually help your child face their anxieties and develop problem-solving strategies. This book is a must for parents, teachers and anyone working with children.

The number of people with some form of shyness has increased, and research now suggests that up to 50 per cent of people experience it. Many of these are "shy extroverts" - people who are publicly outgoing, but privately experience painful thoughts or feelings. Social phobia, the more chronic form of shyness, is now thought to affect about 13 per cent of people. People who are shy are also at increased risk of depression and anxiety. The growth in shyness may be partly due to increased reliance on technology as a means of communicating, leaving people less adept at face to face interaction. As children are increasingly forced off the streets and families become smaller so there are fewer opportunities for unstructured, unsupervised interaction. Finally, automation is replacing human contact in many areas of life from ATMs to the notorious telephone answering services.This book looks at: the anthropological and cultural contexts of shyness; social development and personality; the benefits of shyness such as more committed relationships; how to increase confidence; dealing with social anxiety; finding friends and romance; and, shyness and longer-lasting psychological problems.

Having to make conversation with new people used to fill me with an abundance of anxiety. The thought of having to make conversation or small talk would make give me a complete mind-blank, making sure I cut any chit chat dead before it began. I found it hard to have a conversation that would just 'flow' with most people, let alone strangers. I was familiar with the gut churning feeling of awkward silences and would try to avoid any kind of eye contact or acknowledgment that I was making the situation quite uncomfortable. I was painfully shy, awkward and anxious. I wrote this book for my past self. The nervous, timid and awkward me. I want to show you how to go from that to transforming yourself into a person who handles social situations fearlessly and tackles life with a better mindset.

This volume brings together leading authorities to review progress in understanding the development, causes, and consequences of shyness and social withdrawal. Compelling topics include: *The interplay of biological, psychological, family, and interpersonal processes in shyness and social withdrawal from infancy through adolescence. *The impact on peer relationships and academic performance. *Links among shyness, social withdrawal, and social anxiety disorder. *The positive side of unsociability—when to "leave children alone." *Implications for clinical practice and educational interventions.

This is the first book ever written on how to overcome shyness and social anxiety... from the perspective of someone who has actually overcome these issues himself. Most of the "confidence" self-help books out there tell you useless advice like "fake it 'til you make it" or "just think about what's the worst that can happen." You won't find that garbage in this book. Instead, you'll learn specific, science-based techniques to quickly eliminate your shyness and social anxiety. The System Has 3 Parts: 1. The first part of the book explains the overall strategy for "rewiring your brain" to transform your personality to stop being shy, quiet and withdrawn. You'll finally be confident and comfortable in your own skin, even at parties and around the opposite sex. 2. The second part of the book reveals 3 techniques that allow you to almost instantly stop feeling anxious, nervous and tense in social situations. 3. The third part of the book shows you how to change the way you THINK so you don't feel insecure and self-conscious anymore. You also learn how to be more talkative and spontaneous... even if you've always had problems not knowing what to say in conversations. Some Reviews For The System: "As a clinical psychologist specializing in social anxiety and self-help systems, I was amazed at how well Sean has distilled many of the principles that can actually make a difference for those of us who battle social anxiety. Sean's information is straight to the point and focused on some of the most critical skills for managing shyness and anxiety." - Dr. Todd Snyder, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Chicago "As a former shy, "invisible" guy myself, I find something fascinating in what Sean teaches in this program because you can tell he's been through it, he knows personally what it's like to have shyness and social anxiety, and he grasped how to beat it." - Eduard Ezeanu, Professional Communication Coach "I have only used your information for a short time, but I already notice I am more confident now. One specific situation was that I got the job in my last job interview, cause I was able to be more calm and confident."- Ask T. Borgen, 25, Musician Kongsberg, Norway "Up until 50 years old I knew something was wrong with me but did not know what it was. I was different from many other people and wondered why I couldn't socialize. It was about this time that I purchased Sean's Shyness and Social Anxiety Program. It helped a lot. Sean described what I went through very accurately. His section on how to have a conversation was the best part. At age 63, for the first time in my life, I went to someone's house to meet socially with a group of people." - John Kaye, 64, Stained Glass Artist "My biggest problems before were not knowing what to say to people and being too self conscious. Since reading your information, I've started improving my conversation skills and being more spontaneous. I can start conversations with people I never would have before. I have more confidence and am revealing myself more to people." - Anna, 17, Middlesbrough England "I was terribly shy. It was hard for me to make friends at school. I couldn't really talk to anyone but my teachers and when I would talk to people, I'd be very nervous and anxious. It's so much better now, like I don't know how much to thank you. Moving on to a newer school, I made new friends and they all love me for who I am. I talk a lot more now and even my family noticed and are happier with me." - Misha, Montreal Canada

Shyness is a common problem that comes with a high price. If you suffer from shyness or social anxiety you might avoid social situations and may have trouble connecting with others due to an extreme fear of humiliation, rejection, and judgment. As a shy person, you may also experience panic attacks that make it even more likely that you’ll avoid social situations. With The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Social Anxiety and Shyness, the authors’ acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) program for overcoming shyness has become available to the public for the first time. This program has been found to be highly effective in research studies for the treatment of social anxiety disorder and related subclinical levels of shyness. In the first section, you will confront performance fears, test anxiety, shy bladder, and interpersonal fears—fundamental symptoms of social anxiety. The second part helps you learn psychological flexibility to improve your ability to accept the feelings, thoughts, and behavior that may arise as you learn to work past your anxiety. By keeping your values front and center, you will gradually learn to move beyond your fears and toward greater social confidence.

This volume is about shyness: its definitions and conceptualization as a psy chological construct, research on its causes and consequences, methods for meas uring shyness, strategies for alleviating the unpleasant experiences associated with shyness, and its connection to other forms of social anxiety and inhibition. the book together was to provide a resource for The principal goal in putting psychologists from several subdisciplines, most notably social, personality, clin ical, and development13-l psychology, in addition to social scientists from other disciplines. We do riot assume that these chapters, considered collectively or individually, provide answers to every conceivable issue with respect to shyness. Rather, we hope that the book will serve to integrate what is known about shyness on the basis of current research and theorizing and to provide both directions and impetus for continued research, theoretical evolution, and improved techniques of assessment and intervention. But one might ask, why another book on shyness? In particular, why a book at this time given the recent appearance of other books on the topic and in view of the extensive literature on related topics such as introversion and anxiety-topics that would seem to compete with shyness for the same concep tual space? Our decision to edit this volume was prompted by several consid erations, some practical, others more substantive in nature.

Recently developed psychosocial treatments for anxiety disorders reflect the systematic influence of scientifically generated knowledge, and these new treatments yield strong results. Research in such areas as information processing, cognition, behavioral avoidance, and the physiological components of anxious arousal has increased our knowledge of mediators that cause and maintain anxiety disorders. The development of these new clinical tools is timely, as epidemiological studies now show that up to 25% of people will experience at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Meanwhile, mental health care providers are increasingly pressured to limit the number of sessions and use demonstrably effective treatments. In this book, the authors review psychosocial treatments for anxiety disorders, focusing on the scientific basis and demonstrated outcomes of the treatments. Cognitive behavioral therapies are highlighted, as they have been the most frequently investigated approaches to treating anxiety disorders. Individual chapters feature specific phobias: social phobia, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. The book is rich in clinical material and integrates science and clinical practice in an effort to help practitioners to improve the effectiveness of their work with anxious clients.
