Since I purchased the book, I have learnt so much more about myself and this devastating condition that has greatly affected my life for most of my life. Dr. Richards' explanations of the causes of social anxiety and his tried and tested strategies to overcome social anxiety are fairly easy to learn and practice, and they have proved to work or me. They have even 'spilled-over' and benefited other aspects of my life.
Social anxiety is a terrible condition that no one deserves to live with. Dr. Richards' therapy is the best way that I have encountered to overcome it.

I had purchased other "hierarchy" workbook type books and the suggestions were not realistic to me and my brain. Not to mention visits to therapists who did not understand my anxiety. As you will learn, Dr. Richards fully understands Social Anxiety.
Once I began Dr. Richard's therapy, I was able to understand why i was so uncomfortable in so many situations. That understanding was helpful by itself. The therapy explains how to realistically change the way you think and ultimately feel better by gaining strength and confidence.
If you have Social Anxiety, this workbook will speak to you. I highly recommend the entire program, but to be able to obtain the workbook for this price is truly an affordable first step to releasing the boat anchor that is Social Anxiety.
I'm convinced the best place/treatment for Social Anxiety in the ENTIRE WORLD is Dr. Richard's Social Anxiety Institute.
