Publisher's Summary

Fear. Worry. Paranoia. Will it ever stop?

Do you absolutely despise social events because of the inevitable small talk you know you would have to endure, coming up with just about any excuse under the moon as to why you can’t go so you can stay home - alone?

Are you prone to panic attacks in times of stress, whether it be emotional, mental, or physical, and wish to be free of this burden that just won’t seem to go away on its own?

Are you tired of feeling like you live under a rock, hermiting away from society, wanting so desperately to feel normal and to be a part of life events without fear or anxiety shadowing every move?

Don’t worry, you’re not weird for feeling uncomfortable at social gatherings or in places where there are many people, nor are you alone.

Anyone can experience anxiety - children, teens, women, and men alike - making these types of disorders the most common mental illness in the United States. The issue, however, lies in the fact that many take medication as their form of treatment.

According to HelpGuide, several side effects are commonly associated with anxiety medications, such as:

  • Slurred speech 
  • Dizziness 
  • Memory problems 
  • Headache 
  • Blurred vision

Drug dependency can also become an issue alongside these adverse effects.

Now’s the time to rip off the Zoloft bandaid and apply a new strategy - one that involves changing your mindset through thoughts, not substances.

In The Social Anxiety Disorder Solution, you will discover:

  • The major telltale signs distinguishing shyness and insecurity from an actual anxiety disorder, as well as how to push past these obstacles 
  • Parenting no-no’s that will increase your child’s risk of developing social anxiety and may even reveal clues as to why you behave the way you do 
  • The number one tool you need to start utilizing today in order to evaluate the severity of your social anxiety and figure out what your next step towards recovery is 
  • How to tackle and overcome shyness in children and teens, paving the way for a much happier, livelier son or daughter 
  • A mind-stimulating technique to approach panic attacks with, allowing you to identify your triggers, take control over your emotions, and ultimately prevent future meltdowns 
  • The secret to boosting your overall self-image and feeling of self-worth that will have you seeing yourself in a whole new positive light 
  • The powerful effect of this particular social anxiety disorder treatment that will free you from the shackles of anxiety
  • And much more.

Even if you feel like you’ll never be able to change the way you think or act, that it’s hopeless to even bother, it’s not. Through proper guidance, as well as persistence on your part and the determination to improve your quality of life, you will be able to overcome your anxiety.

The methods provided won’t act as quick fixes, but they will prove to be much more effective in the long run than any drug ever will.

This is a very small pet peeve

This is a very small pet peeve but shyness isn't the same as social anxiety and I was a bit miffed that the title implied that. But that's just me. Terrific book! I would use it in combination with a social anxiety workbook that has more exercises.

It's helping me understand my social anxiety

It's really helping me understand my social anxiety. I still have to finish it but I'm 75% through it and it's already been very helpful. I'm understanding the true fears behind my social anxiety and it's making me think deeper about it.

It's short, sweet, and to the point. There are a few misspelled words, but that's not a big deal.
The information is good and is a good pep talk. It's very encouraging in the way it is written. We all have to work at this, we all get nervous, but it's all good practice.

Great book

There are some great strategies for finding new topics and ways to engage people. Finally, something to talk about other than the weather! I’m going to a big conference and this was just what I needed to point me in the direction for some prep work before meeting a lot of new people.

I now realize on how much I can achieve

If you label yourself shy, introvert, social anxious then this book is for you. It helped me understand myself and why I do things I do. If I would have read this book 20 years back my life would have been different. I now realize on how much I can achieve if I get over the inner critic inside my head

This is a must have if you have social anxiety.

This is a must have if you have social anxiety. A lot of what is covered in the book reflects how I and I'm sure many people really feel. The books helps you acknowledge that you have a problem and what the strategy is to fix it. It helps me stop pretending that everything is fine. It makes you want to stop waiting and take action.

So many good tools for uncovering

So many good tools for uncovering and dealing with the root causes. The three level approach is very pragmatic and I would recommend starting at the beginning and going straight through and not jumping ahead. You can’t hurry or force this process but with this book you can finally find the open door to a new freedom of being your authentic self.
