Social Anxiety

Anxiety and stress are everyday life experiences that we all experience and learn to manage as part of our life skills. One specific type of anxiety is social anxiety. Most of us have experienced some type of social anxiety (e.g., job interview, first date, etc.). When children learn to manage aspects of their social anxiety, it helps them build social competencies for collaborating with others and building relationships, both core for later academic, career, and social development. In this webinar, learn how to break down social anxiety and get strategies to build up social competencies. Explore what clients and students have reported to be helpful and not so helpful.

Join Michelle Garcia Winner, the founder and CEO of Social Thinking, to gain a basic understanding of the relationship between social anxiety and social competencies. Discover practical strategies for supporting your students or children.
