, About the shyness and social anxiety workbook for teens

The Shyness and Social Anxiety Workbook for Teens is a valuable resource that incorporates both Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) skills to address anxiety in teenagers, in public situations. This workbook provides practical exercises and techniques that can help teens build social confidence, overcome excessive worry about others’ opinions, and manage embarrassment in social situations.

What is Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety, also known as social phobia, is a mental health condition. It characterized by an intense fear of social situations and interactions. People with social anxiety often experience excessive self-consciousness, worry about being judged or embarrassed, and fear of humiliation or rejection. This fear can be so overwhelming that it interferes with their ability to function in everyday life and engage in social activities. Physical symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, trembling, and difficulty speaking may accompany social anxiety. Treatment options for this situation include therapy, medication, and self-help strategies to manage and reduce symptoms, improve self-confidence, and enhance social functioning.

What is CBT?

CBT techniques included in the workbook focus on identifying and challenging negative thoughts and beliefs that contribute to social anxiety. Through CBT, teens learn to recognize distorted thinking patterns and replace them with more realistic and positive thoughts. This process helps reduce self-consciousness and the fear of being judged or rejected by others. The workbook also incorporates behavioral techniques such as exposure therapy, where teens gradually face their fears in a controlled and supportive environment, allowing them to build confidence and desensitize themselves to anxiety-provoking situations.

What is ACT?

ACT skills in the workbook emphasize acceptance of anxious thoughts and feelings rather than trying to eliminate them. Teens are taught mindfulness techniques to observe their anxious thoughts without judgment, allowing them to detach from them and reduce their impact. ACT also encourages teens to clarify their values and take committed action towards their goals, even in the presence of anxiety.

I translated this book in 2015 for Persian-speaking teenagers in Iran. I believe that due to various social and political reasons, these teenagers are unable to access high quality psychological services.

Also I recommend you thease books: Stress Management, and Beyond the blues.
