The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Building Social Confidence
Using Compassion-Focused Therapy to Overcome Shyness and Social Anxiety
by Lynne Henderson Ph.D.

The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Building Social Confidence helps readers overcome shyness using compassion-focused therapy (CFT), which has been proven to reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, self-criticism, shame, and inferiority.

Full Description:   

Social anxiety is one of the most difficult types of anxiety to overcome because chronically shy people often experience shame, rumination, perfectionism, and self-criticism when they attempt to enter feared social situations. As a result, shy people tend to withdraw from others, a strategy that can lead to social anxiety disorder and depression and severely hamper their ability to move forward in life.

The Compassionate-Mind Guide to Building Social Confidence helps readers overcome shyness using compassion-focused therapy (CFT), which has been proven to reduce feelings of depression, anxiety, self-criticism, shame, and inferiority. The evaluations and exercises in this guide help readers learn the core CFT skills of compassionate attention, compassionate thinking and reasoning, compassionate behavior, and compassionate emotion and feeling. These skills help the reader develop the inner compassion they need to reduce shame and self-judgment and the confidence to make rewarding social connections with others. Additionally, this book helps readers gain assertiveness skills so that they can stand up to others when necessary and shield themselves against their own self-criticisms. Readers begin feeling relief from the crushing feelings of shame and self-blame immediately, which motivates them to continue with the program and make strides toward complete social confidence
