What Are the Theories Behind This Worksheet?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for the treatment of social anxiety disorder is not a new but a well-versed approach to managing the problem. People with this disorder experience erroneous thought patterns like others’ mind reading producing negative thoughts and worst assumptions as catastrophizing like I am a total failure or labeling oneself as a goof, fool, terrible, etc. However, CBT aims to alter these negative thought patterns associated with negative emotional expressions like chills, sweating, hot flashes, trembling or shaking, etc. Thus, this change of thought changes emotions that will bring the respective change in negative behavior from avoidance, anxiousness, and isolation to adaptation, confidence, and networking.
