14-WEEK "BT" GROUP
DESIGNED TO REINFORCE/BUILD ON PROGRESS FROM INITIAL CCBGT

STARTS OCTOBER 12, 2013
BEHAVIORAL THERAPY "BT" GROUP
NOW OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT!!!

 
   

 

 

GOAL:  To provide graduates of the initial 14/16-week Comprehensive Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CCBT) Group   with the opportunity to reinforce their new rational ways of thinking, feeling and doing in both performance and social situations. The major emphasis will be on the doing (behavioral excercises) while fully intergrating the cognitive-behavioral tools learned in the initial CCBT group based on Dr. Richards' audio series "Overcoming Social Anxiety: Step by Step". This therapy group is limited to the treatment of Generalized Social Anxiety Disorder only.

DATES:  Fourteen (14) Saturdays 10-12-13 through 1-18-14.

TIME:  9:30 AM TO 12:30 AM (3 hours) The focus of the group will be doing "Behavioral Experiments" which will allow you to practice using the tools learned in your intial CCBT group. In addition, you will need to be able to regularly participate in specific before and/or after group excursions. These will be planned and announced in advance so that you can schedule them. For example, you will be encouraged to have lunch with other group members from both your group and the basic SAD CCBT Group to practice small talk and socializing skills.

LOCATION:  444 E. Huntington Drive, Suite 333, Arcadia, CA 91006

GROUP SIZE:   Limited to 6 members.

COST:  Reduced fee of $70.00 per each 3 hour group session. A missed session(s) reverts back to full group session fee of $80.00 per session. Refer to group contract for details. 

PRE-REQUISITE:  To be considered for the Continuation Behavioral Therapy "BT" Group you will need to have successfully completed the basic 14/16-Week CCBT group with me or one at the Social Anxiety Institute. Those who have completed similar SAD CCBT Groups with other providers may be considered but must complete a intake assessment first which costs $120.00 to determine appropriateness and readiness for this advanced group. 

CONTRACT:  To be considered for this group you need to be willing and able to make a commitment to participate in the full ten (14) weeks of treatment. (The BT group contract states, in part, that the "BT" Group fee of $80.00 per group session will be charged for any group session missed.  The group contract is intended to maximize the group safety by having establishing clear group rules and to minimize the avoidant behaviors often part of the SAD symptoms--such as arriving late, leaving early or missing a group session.)

GROUP LEADER & MEMBER/MENTOR:  The group will be conducted by Richard A. Preuit, M.A., LMFT.  However, upon occassion a graduate of the initial 14/16-week CCBT group may serve as a mentor (Co-leader/member) during both the group and after group "real world" experiments and excursions.
