...but you're combatting the paralyzing fears that leave clients resistant to change.

To be effective, you need interventions that reach beyond the symptoms — to the deeper beliefs that keep your clients trapped by their anxiety.

Larry Cohen has dedicated his life to treating this disorder, and after three decades of frontline work, he's found that the key to being successful is challenging your clients in just the right way... so they go beyond suppressing beliefs to actually creating the new learning needed for lasting change.

Now, in this comprehensive training course, you can learn how to apply his evidence-based approach for yourself — so you can feel confident with even the most challenging cases.

Through step-by-step learning sessions filled with real-life client demonstrations, you'll be able to master exactly what to do and say to tailor the right treatment plan for your clients.

These client cases are becoming more and more prevalent, making this a must-have training for all therapists!

Course Outline
Join Larry Cohen to learn how to leverage his evidence-based approach to lasting client change.

Through six comprehensive, step-by-step modules, you'll learn exactly how to apply his methods — so you'll know exactly what to do and what to say to your clients.

Module 1 | Understanding Social Anxiety and Its Evidence-Based Treatment

Join Larry Cohen to gain a comprehensive understanding of social anxiety. Go beyond the basic symptoms and diagnostic criteria to get essential insight into: how social anxiety disorder differs from other concerns like shyness and introversion, how it may be impacted by identity factors, and why shame is such a central factor of social anxiety. Then, discover an integrative approach to treating social anxiety that goes beyond traditional CBT approaches.
Module 2 | Strategies for Accepting and Defusing from Socially Anxious Thoughts

In Module 2, you'll learn the first of the five core treatment strategies: Curiosity Training, also referred to as External Mindfulness. Discover how mindfulness, meditation, and thought defusion can be used to help your clients face their social fears. Then, find out exactly how to teach this important skill to your clients by watching Larry in a role play with fellow clinician, Chamin. He will show you what to do to prepare your client for the practice as well as how to process the experience with them in order to deepen their learning.
Module 3 | Strategies for Changing Socially Anxious Thoughts

Take your skills for working with anxious thoughts to the next level. Learn the most effective way to help your clients identify, reframe, and defuse from their worries so that they are no longer held back by their fears. Listen as Larry demonstrates how to introduce these skills and watch as he uses role play to help client thoughts and build self-confidence using powerful imagery strategies.
Module 4 | Experiments to Test Anxious Thoughts and Reduce Avoidance

In this module, you'll learn how to use behavioral experiments, which are some of the best methods to help your clients overcome their social anxiety fast. Guide your clients to confront the very situations they fear the most, and find out exactly what to do to turn these new learning experiences into significant and lasting changes for your client. You'll see exactly what to do before, during, and after the experiments, so that you will feel confident guiding your client through this process.
Module 5 | Assertiveness Training to Increase Self-Confidence

Help your clients develop self-confidence through the assertiveness skill, "Head Held High." Watch as Larry shows you how to use in-session role plays to assist your clients in building a strong sense of self and trust in their ability to handle even the most difficult social situations.
Module 6 | Changing Core Beliefs to Increase Self-Confidence and Make Progress Beyond Therapy

Guide your client to long-lasting change with this final skill, "Core Belief Change Work." Follow along with Larry as he shows you, step-by-step, how to identify the most common themes of the deeply held beliefs of those with social anxiety. Watch as he helps his client transform painful beliefs about herself. Finally, find out how to wrap up treatment with your clients in a way that will ensure they maintain their gains, make further progress after treatment ends and prevent the return of social anxiety in the long term.
