Psychologist, podcast host, and author of, How to Be Yourself: Quiet Your Inner Critic and Rise Above Social Anxiety, Dr. Ellen Hendriksen shares powerful techniques for managing—and even overcoming!—social anxiety. Join us as we discuss:
•The difference between social anxiety and shyness.
•The nature vs. nurture debate and how it relates to social anxiety.
•How our behavior rewires our brain—and how we can use this knowledge in overcoming social anxiety.
•The myth of confidence in social settings (spoiler alert: it’s not actually necessary!)
•How we can replace and embrace irrational thoughts to alleviate anxiety.
•The research behind “playing a role” in social situations, and how this “acting” ends up revealing your authentic self.
Step away from debilitating nervousness and into the social life you’ve always wanted by taking charge of your thoughts to rise above social anxiety!
