What is the theory behind this Social Anxiety Therapy Worksheet?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is particularly useful for treating social anxiety. It empowers individuals to accept their distressing thoughts and emotions and learn to live with them so that they can continue to live a meaningful life. It can help individuals develop skills that can be used to take control of their negative thoughts and emotions instead of being controlled by them.
