Some interesting techniques.

Some interesting techniques.

In people with FS are observed several phenomena contributing to the problem remains, despite the many times I have had to confront the feared situations. On the one hand, people with FS judge their behavior in social situations in a very negative. Generally claim that they have fatal, largely because they have noticed lot of nerve as they were. Moreover, to avoid nervousness they tend to take notice small, subtle strategies to "avert" the danger: keep your hands still and holding strongly to things that are not noticed the tremor, cover their faces so that note they are not flush, speak little to no more nonsense, or very fast pair finish sooner, take off their glasses or avoid looking at their eyes to see others realize their voltage does not remove the jacket to not notice the sweat, etc.. And finally, people tend to look only FS on the negative and more threatening situation, such as symptoms of anxiety and potentially critical and disparaging reactions of others.

To address this kind of problem, all they do is maintain it and enhance it, we use three techniques of proven efficacy in the treatment of FS.
Using Video in trials in order to correct this distorted image of themselves and of their performance. The person checks (with surprise) that neither has done so poorly, or "noticed" her symptoms although she lived intensely.

Neglect of safety behaviors in order to minimize possible to use these "tricks" subtle that all you do is perpetuate the problem and sometimes intensify (if you talk fast to stop before someone can not understand and have to repeat, if you cover your face can skip this more to the view that the blush, if you do not remove the jacket so you will not see the sweat, it is likely to sweat even more, etc.).

Training in change of focus, ie focus more on training aspects that make it easy (I listen carefully, I smile, I'm not so nervous / a as before, took the subject well prepared, and so on. ) than those who only going to get is get more nervous and hamper what we do.

Two additional support.
The overall treatment program is complemented by two other components: Self-Esteem and Social Skills.
Self-esteem: Often (but not the norm) that people with FS have a low self-esteem and feelings of inferiority. This component "extra" consists of 4 individual treatment sessions in which you work the poor image the person has of itself, correct so that the person acquires more confidence and a better opinion of herself, which will both benefit when have to face situations that are problematic for her.

Social Skills: This component applies additionally offering it to people who have difficulties in social skills both basic levels of communication (smile, eye contact, time or speed of speech, voice volume, etc..), As to more complex levels of deployment of certain behaviors (initiating conversations, introduce, greet, enter a group, etc..) and assertiveness. Social Skills group is working on for 4 sessions in which various skills are practiced using various drills and exercises.

Use of new technologies for Public Speaking Fear.
There is a high percentage of people (about 20%) suffering Fear of Public Speaking and especially for these people have developed the Speak to me.
This program is a self-applied treatment that a person can do from home, via internet, and the pace you want. Furthermore, at all times, Dr. Net (the therapist in the network) will carry out checks to ensure that the person is applying the treatment correctly.
Tell me consists of different components:
• Assessing the problem, if the result of this indicates that the person presents MHP, then Dr.Net will recommend further treatment in case Tell me can not help your problem, we recommend you contact a professional.
• This block is offered, the user of the program valuable information to carry out treatment, such a show to make the exhibition, which are phobias, ...
• Exhibition. When the person reaches this block is exposed to feared situations, gradually at their own pace, through the computer.
• Relapse Prevention. After completing the exposure, you are given information about possible
 difficult situations related to fear and what it could do in such cases.
• Post-assessment. After completing treatment, the program re-evaluates his fear, to determine
 whether it would be convenient to return to perform some tasks or, conversely, fear no longer interferes in their daily lives and therefore, may terminate treatment.

At all times, the person who is applying the treatment you can contact us if you have any questions or even the computer if you have problems with the program.
