Abstract

This article discusses diagnostic features of social phobia, social\nskills and (anxious) avoidant personality disorder, and gives an\noverview on principles of cognitive behaviour therapy strategies used in\nsocial anxiety patients. Motivation to change and the therapeutic\nrelationship are important issues to be worked on at the beginning and\nthroughout therapy. Functional analysis focuses on interactional and\nsystemic features. Three specific programmes dealing with anxiety\nmanagement, social skills training and relaxation techniques are\npresented (Gruppentraining sozialer Kompetenzen, Hinsch und Pfingsten\n(2007): Soziale Phobien, ein kognitiv-verhaltenstherapeutisches\nBehandlungsmanual, Stangier et al. (2003) und Soziales\nKompetenztraining, Gruppentherapie bei sozialen Angsten und Defiziten,\nAlsleben und Hand (2006)).
