Self-Esteem Starter for Socially Anxious Adults
What you'll learn
- Learn how self-esteem and social anxiety are tied
- Reflect on your self-image
- Interrupt your negative thinking cycle
- Develop genuine self-esteem based on who you actually are
- Lower your social anxiety by becoming more secure with yourself
- No requirements other than wanting to learn how to think differently.
Imagine not panicking before going to a get together.
Imagine being able to come up with things to say when you meet new people instead of freezing.
Imagine feeling satisfied with how an interaction went.
This is all possible, but first you need to change your perspective about yourself.
Social scientific research (specifically Psychology and Communication Studies) consistently shows that the higher your self-esteem, the less social anxiety will negatively affect you.
Self-esteem is LEARNED, so it can also be CHANGED.
Purchase this course if you want to start that change for yourself.
About the Instructor:
I have a Ph.D. in interpersonal communication and 18 years of successfully teaching these concepts to higher education students.
I also have social anxiety. As I'll discuss in the course, I developed this straightforward three-step process based on my education in the interpersonal field, as well my own trial and error in raising my own self-esteem. It's a bit messy, as anything regarding mental health can be, but it works.
However, it requires you to have an open mind to (slow) change.
In addition to teaching you concepts from Communication Studies and Psychology, I also use myself as a case study. I admit some embarrassing things and felt really uncomfortable throughout the outlining, taping, editing, and posting process. So, understand that the reason I share these things isn't to complain about my own life/problems, but rather to serve as an example for you to see change is actually possible.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who struggles with self-esteem and feel uncomfortable in social situations
I have a Ph.D. in Interpersonal Communication and 18 years experience in the college classroom.
I now work with socially anxious adults to help them create and maintain relationships they enjoy, all while being themselves.
At the heart of social anxiety is a communication problem. It's not that socially anxious adults are inherently bad at communicating, but rather that the people they grew up around communicated with them in a way that made them feel as though something (or many things) are wrong with them.
I consider it my job to help socially anxious adults see that other people don't get more of a say in who they are than themselves.
