Summary

Have you ever met someone who acted a bit strange? Did you perhaps meet them at a party and found that trying to make conversation with them was like pulling teeth?

Perhaps you work with someone that, when you speak with them, they can’t or won’t make eye contact with you?

Or have you attended an event and felt overwhelmed and lacked self-confidence, thinking that the way you were dressed, how you looked, and even what you said was being judged?

All three of these scenarios explain some of the many behaviors that a person with a social anxiety disorder (also known as SAD) displays.

The causes of this mental disorder begins in childhood, usually at the age when a child begins puberty, but sometimes, it strikes younger children, usually because of a parent or parents who have social anxiety or because they are brought up in a strict, unyielding environment, observe social anxiety behavior or have direct experience with the condition at a young age.

Social anxiety disorder (SAD) affects approximately 15 million adults in the United States.

Almost 50 percent of all people who are diagnosed with SAD are also prone to and diagnosed with depression. Other effects of social anxiety disorder are negative thoughts, poor social skills that lack improvement, sensitivity to criticism, low self-esteem, and self-medication with alcohol and drugs.

Even though you may think you don’t suffer from SAD, there may be someone who is a family member, a friend, or a colleague at work who may show signs of this disorder.

Also, realize that not every person who has this condition exhibits extreme behavior. There are those people who may or may not realize they have SAD, because there are levels that are mild and moderate. People at those levels seem to think that their anxiety is "normal" although it wouldn’t hurt for them to understand they can live without anxiety and learn to manage it. It would be beneficial for them to understand what causes them to react to certain triggers that increase their anxiety level.

There is so much information contained in this audiobook for you to discover and understand about social anxiety disorder. Some of the highlights are:

  • The signs and symptoms of social anxiety disorder
  • The causes of how social anxiety disorder begins and its effects
  • The behavior that is displayed by people with SAD and what thought processes bring them their negative thinking
  • The thoughts, fears, and dangers that a person with SAD manifests, even when they are perceived and not reality
  • How challenging your mind and thoughts can lead a person with SAD to understand that their fears are usually unfounded and can diminish their anxiety
  • The treatments that can be used without medication to benefit people with mild or moderate SAD  
  • And more....

You can finally overcoming social anxiety and be happier even if you think that it is impossible, because in this audiobook, there is a lot of practice and little theory.

Now you must make the decision, don't be afraid.

Awesome audio book

The best book that has helped me with my social tension. It's astonishing how the entire book is brimming with valuable data, there is no lighten. It's an extraordinary successful book for expelling social tension. This book gives full staff for making this book supportive. Prescribed. Getting a charge out of methodology.

Fantastic book for dark psychology

I follow this book like its the bible.
I love the practice statements.
The book is more for taming negative thoughts in order to rewire your brain.
You have to practice a lot and take this book seriously.

Many Psychological information

i read it once. i will read it twice, three times or more until i completely get rid of my social anxiety. i promise that i will follow Dr. Richards recommendations "keep going, do not give up" , "do it step by step" "dont put pressure on yourself" ... until i succeed. they are absolutely the most simple but rational advices that you can never hear enough.

Informative book

Overcoming Social Anxiety Step by Step is an interesting approach to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy geared specifically to overcoming Social Anxiety. A person operating at even the most severe level of anxiety can begin to use the book in a non-threatening way which leads to the client beginning to feel better right away. One of the points the book focuses on are changing a person's thoughts from negative ones to more rational, truthful ones and it goes into detail to explain how to do this and gives exercises to help accomplish it. I haven't finished the book yet but it looks promising especially if it's paired with the on-line class that the book is designed to accompany.
