Developed by Dr. Jan Fleming and Dr. Nancy Kocovski, researchers and authors of The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Social Anxiety & Shyness, this evidence-based program combines Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with treatment components drawn from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). You will receive a workbook and have the opportunity to practice new skills during the group and between meetings.

• Create greater distance between you and your anxious thoughts.
• Have a more concrete understanding of your values.
• Learn how to set and work towards realistic goals in social situations.
