A New Approach to Social Anxiety, Social Phobia and Shyness
Psychotherapist and development coach Murray Dabby, LCSW and Lesly have teamed up to provide a new valuable approach to helping people who suffer from social anxiety, phobia, speaking in front of groups, or ordinary forms of shyness and difficulties in social environments.
Based on their experiences in their respective work, as well as learning from the successful Second City approach in Chicago, the combined use of improv and therapy can be a significant tool to help someone manage anxiety felt in social situations.
Each class will include a 90 minute improv experience followed by an 1 hour-long opportunity for group members to safely process the experience. The class activities will progress from simple play to more elaborate experiences based on the needs of the group. The sharing group sessions will explore our reactions to the exercises as well as how the playful lessons learned in class can be used in everyday life.
An initial consultation may be required for each participant prior to the first class to help insure the experience will be a success.
Class size will be optimal for members to have a positive and productive learning experience.
Please call us for fee structure. There will also be an opportunity for partial scholarships, based on need.
