Do you have difficulty in speaking with others and making eye contact while speaking? Do the symptoms like sweating, blushing, nausea, and trembling constantly trouble you while you are in social situations? Then you have a social phobia!
As people most often think, social phobia is not like shyness, it is much more! – insists Dr. Yasmine Saad, from Madison Park Psychological Services, New York.
Shyness is a personality variation in which people experience the intense feeling of discomfort and emotional distress while in a social situation (like partying, speech, etc…), however, they like to socialize.
On the other hand, social phobia is an EXCESSIVE FEAR of negative evaluations like being scrutinized or humiliated, or bullied. Wherever they go, they will be just haunted by the fear of negative evaluations. For them, even going to the public restroom can trigger social distress. Therefore, it must be treated as early as possible. Or else, it can take control of the life and end up in chronic depression, addiction to drugs/alcohol, loss of productivity, poor life quality, and finally in suicide.
Fortunately, social phobia is totally treatable with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in short CBT is effective in treating social phobia, as it works on a principle – “Our thoughts, emotions, and behavior impact one another to define how we feel, think, and act in a particular situation” — says Dr. Yasmine Saad.
In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, first, your therapists will discuss what’s bothering you to get to know your needs and the goal you want to achieve. Then your psychologist will employ some techniques to analyze and recognize your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions which will figure out what is contributing to the feeling of self-consciousness and fear of public scrutiny.
After figuring out the triggers, your therapists will teach you strategies to acquire new skills, concerning your abilities and compassion to replace those negative thoughts (fear of being scrutinized). This is like learning in schools. You will learn new skills that will impact your memory power to make it a habitual act and that will help change or reframe the distorted thoughts or behaviors. Therefore, you will no longer be disturbed by fear. Sometimes, you will receive medications if needed. However, at the end of the session, you will have acquired new skills to challenge your phobia without forcing your mind or body.
Overcoming social phobia can be a very smooth process with the support of an experienced therapist, and you can come out of social phobia and improve your life’s quality – explains the expert.
