This group is designed for ages 10-13 and is led by Dr. Roisin O'Mara, a child and adolescent psychologist who has expertise in treating anxiety disorders in young people. In this program your child will learn skills to better manage their shyness and social anxiety. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), which is the most effective treatment for social anxiety and is backed by many years of research, will be the focus of this group. Your child will learn skills to face anxiety provoking social situations with bravery and confidence. They will interact with other shy and socially anxious children in the group as a way to help them learn how to make friends and receive support. Most of all they will have fun!
