Social Anxiety Disorder

Jan 10, 2011   //   by Richard Figueira   //   Uncategorized  //  16 Comments

At one time or another we all get nervous around people. For many this feeling can be a very serious condition that may not allow them to perform their daily tasks or routines. Social Anxiety effects many people around the world but the good news it’s treatable.

The first level of the disorder can primarily focus on performance. With Performance Social Anxiety a ordinary person has trouble getting up in front of people because they feel they maybe be judged. This also includes social speaking, and they go out of their way to avoid any of these situations.

The next level of anxiety is usually what we all have a little of: General Anxiety Disorder.   It’s the bodies natural response to many given situations. For others this disorder creates it difficult to have friends or go out with people you know or work with. You can get anxious in crowds of people even if you know them. The anxiety increases if you actually have to speak.

The last is the most difficult of the 3 social anxiety levels. With Avoidant it actually takes over your personality. People with Avoidant Personality Disorder often are considered loners and never leave the house. They often will not find a partner in life. Early signs of this disorder can be seen in childhood.

On a positive note, these conditions can be treated by a therapist using psychoeducation, CBT and Exposure Therapy.   You may require assistance with medication but working with a therapist and a psychiatrist, the world can become a more enjoyable place to live in.

In using CBT, your therapist will begin to work with you on reformatting some of your thoughts that maybe leading to your primary emotion. This emotion in the end will result in your choice of action; to interact with people or not.

We can help.
