SASG is structured specifically for people living with social anxiety.
The group consists of three types of monthly meetings: (1) Exposure Meeting, (1) Support Meeting, and (1) Social Meeting.
Exposure Meetings will consist of various SA exposure challenges that will help the recovery process. The intention is to provide a safe and supportive environment for challenging your social anxiety. Exposure therapy is a crucial part of overcoming social anxiety. The more you practice a situation, the more you desensitize your anxiety. The tough part is finding a safe place to do it—that's what this group aims to provide.
Support Meetings will consist of general discussion about living with social anxiety. The intention is for people of all ages to meet and talk about their experience with SA. You can participate at your own pace. If you just want to sit and watch, that is perfectly okay.
Social Meetings will be completely informal meetings where an activity is planned. The purpose is to provide a place where we can meet new people, socialize, and make friends. These meetings will take place on weekends.
There is no cost to join this group. People of all ages are welcome.

We will be stretching our social muscles on Zoom for the unforeseeable future due to social distancing.
If you don't have a video camera or microphone on any of your devices, you can simply call a phone number and be connected to the group. You can opt to just listen too and not have either video or microphone activated. Whatever your comfort level is, we want you there!
Whether you are from Rochester, NY or beyond, you are welcome. Please note that meetings are on Eastern Standard Time.
After you RSVP on Meetup, you will receive an e-mail with the information you need in order to connect to the meeting. No need to create a Zoom account in advance.
You can use audio through your internet audio (your device's microphone) or via telephone through a phone call. If through a phone call, you will be provided a phone number to dial.
We look forward to meeting you!
