St. Lucia Social Phobia Treatment Group


The Social Phobia Treatment Group is a high quality, low-cost group program for people that have problems in social situations. Group treatment is a way for people with similar problems to work together. Group members can benefit from getting support from others who share their experience, and may provide this support and understanding to others. Group treatment is one of the best ways for managing Social Phobia, as it provides an excellent way for members to practice new skills in a small, supportive group environment.

The Social Phobia Treatment Group is an 8 week therapy program. The treatment sessions last two hours. The group is a Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT) program focusing on the relationship between the unhelpful thoughts, physical symptoms and avoidance. Members of the group learn about the causes and symptoms of anxiety. They also learn skills to manage anxiety so they may gradually feel more comfortable in social situations. While the treatment is in a group, we focus on each person's individual concerns to provide practical strategies to face the social situations they fear. The group is run by a clinical psychologist and two intern psychologists.

Before the group begins, members take part in an individual assessment session to make sure the group is right for them. They also attend a one hour individual pre-group appointment, where they can meet one of the psychologists who will be running the group and learn more about the program. To get the most out of the program members should come along to all sessions.

Individual follow up sessions are also available approximately one month after program completion.

what is the cost of group CBT?

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

group treatment


I notice on the link there is a phone number (that's a big ask of someone with social phobia) if I want more details.

Has anyone completed this course and found it helpful?. Does it run at night or during the day? Do they meet once a week? Does a session go for an hour?.

I'd be interested in trying group therapy too... but maybe there are none in Brisbane. Neither me nor my ex-psychologist could find any...

Bugger, that's disappointing to hear it doesn't exist anymore, that's my uni too so would have been perfect. Has anyone else found anything similar in Brisbane area?

There is a Meetup Group in Brisbane called Anxiety Conquistadors. We do group CBT and group discussions.
