Yeah my 1st choice would be a group with just Social Phobics, but good luck finding one.
I only glanced over the website too. It seems like it at least might be something that gets me to be out around other people. (I don't work). Plus it's cheap. Plus it's been around for 70 yrs! I have multiple diagnoses of:
"Borderline features," and sometimes
(all of which are on the list of disorders that the group helps, according to the website)
It seems like they focus on Dr Low's writings & techniques and how to use them rather than what your specific diagnosis is. But I still haven't gone, so I don't know for sure. I do plan on taking my boyfriend, who likes going to group therapies. My goal would not neccessarily be to become an expert at their techniques. Instead I just need to be around other people and feel connected to other humans, even if they have a different diagnosis--that's ok. What I think is: It doesn't matter what kind
of people we are around, just that we are
around people. Being too picky (which I have been) keeps a person isolated/ is an excuse to not try something. Does that make sense?
I'm hoping to take my own advice and actually go to a Recovery inc group by the end of June.
