Social anxiety is more than shyness
Social anxiety is different from introversion
Social anxiety is an intense, persistent fear of being watched and judged by others
Manage time effectively so you are not rushed or overwhelmed
Be prepared
Guided imagery and rehearsal
Examine the facts and probability
Of the worst case scenario
Decide what is most likely to happen
That people’s reactions actually have to do with you (3 alternatives)
Develop boundaries and assertiveness
Get support (social buffers)

Silence the inner critic (thought stopping, backtalk)
Develop distress tolerance skills to reduce your fight or flight reaction and get into your wise mind (BATS (Breathing, Activities, Thought Stopping, Sensations ))
Reduce stimulants
Keep a log to identify vulnerabilities (people, places, situations, physical status) and develop a plan to address those vulnerabilities
Stay in the present. Bad situations do not have to repeat
Improve self-esteem to reduce the need for external validation
Compare yourself to others… Everybody makes gaffes and faux pas
