The Social Anxiety Group Experience (S.A.G.E.)  

Do you have a fear of interacting with other people?  Are you concerned about looking nervous, or of humiliating or embarrassing yourself in front of others?  Do you fear giving a speech?  Do you turn down social events or avoid dating because you’ll feel uncomfortable?  If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions — if you believe that your social anxiety limits your enjoyment in life — the Social Anxiety Group Experience may be for you.  S.A.G.E. is an 8-week group experience based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles that can help you to combat your anxiety and get more fully engaged in your life.  The group is structured to help you build your motivation to change.  We will be identifying any patterns of avoidance that you have used in the past to control your anxiety; and then, we will develop step-by-step exercises to interrupt unhelpful thoughts that maintain your anxiety and to practice new skills both in and out of the group setting.  Consider what your life might be like if you don’t make steps to change, and consider how your life would be if you no longer experienced social anxiety as a barrier.  If you are interested in joining the Social Anxiety Group Experience, please contact the University Counseling Center at (662) 915-3784.  The group is scheduled to begin the week of October 10th.  All participants will be scheduled to meet individually with the group leader prior to the start of group.
