Negative, distorted self-images are a key feature of social anxiety disorder (SAD)–and working with imagery can make cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) more effective for those who struggle with this debilitating problem. This book presents an innovative modular framework that incorporates vivid multisensory imagery into all aspects of treatment. Step-by-step guidance for implementing this evidence-based approach with individuals or groups is illustrated with rich case material. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, the book includes 35 reproducible worksheets and handouts. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.
