Schüchtern, nervös, unsicher? (Original PDF from Publisher)
This guide helps younger people who are troubled by social fears and who want to get rid of them. Most are insecure, inhibited and fearful of being embarrassed in unfamiliar situations, of being perceived as strange or incompetent and of being rejected.
Shyness, nervousness and insecurity in unfamiliar, novel situations are widespread and are considered normal. Everyone knows uncomfortable situations in which they are tense and awkward and cannot appear relaxed. A social anxiety disorder (also known as social phobia) is only present when the fear of negative evaluation becomes particularly severe, affects the person and causes distress.
The guide is written by an experienced therapist in an understandable and motivating manner – even for impatient young readers who can find short versions. Case studies show ways to help yourself. Well structured and clear – with many examples; important content and tips are highlighted.
Dr. Sigrun Schmidt-Traub, qualified psychologist and sociologist, behavior therapist for children, adolescents and adults with over 30 years of outpatient experience in her own practice. Today she works as a lecturer and supervisor in the training of prospective behavior therapists.
