Three Evidence-Based Strategies for Treating Social Anxiety Disorder 
Despite being one of the most prevalent anxiety disorders experienced by adolescents and adults in the United States, the severity of Social Anxiety Disorder is widely underestimated by both the clinical and non-clinical community (Warner et al., 2018). The experience of Social Anxiety Disorder is associated with a range of problems including lower occupational attainment and lower earning potential, poorer quality of relationships, and an increased likelihood of experiencing other disorders such as problematic alcohol use and depression (Hope et al., 2010). This webinar will offer an overview of three Cognitive Behavioral Treatment strategies for Social Anxiety Disorder. The webinar will also provide a look at important elements of identity (e.g., ethnicity and sexual orientation) and their potential impact on the experience of social anxiety.

Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    Define Social Anxiety Disorder and the two core elements of the disorder.
2.    Summarize three main components of Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for Social Anxiety Disorder.
3.    Describe how diversity factors such as ethnicity and sexual orientation can impact the experience of social anxiety.
