What we're about

All day, every day, we experience fear, depression, loneliness, and emotional pain. Anxious about how others perceive us, we feel incompetent, awkward, and undesirable. We worry about criticism, disapproval, and rejection; never ‘fitting in.’ We are apprehensive to enter a conversation, afraid we’ll have nothing to talk about and will appear dull or ignorant. We are caught up in an interconnected network of fear and avoidance of social situations.

Proactive neuroplasticity empowers us to transform our thoughts, behaviors, and perspectives, creating healthy new mindsets, skills, and abilities. It can dramatically mitigate the self-destructive symptoms and traits of social anxiety disorder. Utilizing the tools and techniques developed for DRNI (the deliberate, repetitive, neural input of information), proactive neuroplasticity accelerates and consolidates learning and unlearning which directly correlates to recovery.

We hold monthly online calls focusing on issues that impact our daily lives.  You will meet colleagues with the same concerns and experiences. Your organizers know social anxiety first-hand and recognize what you are going through.  Our primary objective is to provide a secure and confidential environment where you can share your stories and issues and get answers from persons who understand and care.

Author Brian Tracy writes, “A clear vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling of confidence and personal power.” A structured plan prepares us for any complications that might arise in a feared situation.

A Feared Situation is an occasion that generates anxiety or stress and impacts our emotional well-being. Examples include restaurants, the classroom, job interviews, speaking in front of a group, and socializing with strangers.

Consider the social event. What if we say something stupid, someone ignores us, or we start to shake and sweat profusely? There are nine steps we can take before the situation to moderate our fears and anxieties, and 13 coping skills that help us relax when we get there.

They say that 90% of success is just showing up, but we know there is much more at stake. Together we will briefly cover the coping skills that reduce stress during the of feared-situation.
