Event Description:

Many people feel slightly self-conscious, nervous, or shy in front of other people. However, some children, particularly teenagers, experience an intense and chronic fear of social or performance situations in which they expect to feel embarrassed, judged, rejected, or fearful of offending others. These extreme feelings can significantly interfere with school, extracurricular activities, and making friends.

  • Signs and symptoms of social anxiety disorder
  • Strategies to help teenagers learn different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to social worries and concerns
