Sacred Moments

Social Anxiety in a Larger Perspective

Working with Ken Pargament, we developed and pilot-tested a manualized 10-session group intervention for Social Anxiety/Social Phobia. The “active ingredient” is focusing on ways in which one’s life may be perceived as sacred (our bodies, relationships, memories, etc.). This group is non-religious, and does not promote any particular faith tradition.

Principal Investigator: Carole Bohn.

Team members: Brian McCorkle, Ken Pargament, Tricia Hughes, David Kim.
