About

The Denver Social Anxiety Group is for people in the Denver area who have a desire to improve the quality of their lives by learning and discussing various topics related to psychology. Many of our members suffer from shyness or social anxiety. Others have problems with public speaking anxiety, self-esteem, depression, or weight management.

We meet a few times a month. Our meetings consist of one member giving a brief presentation on a topic relevant to the group, and then we have a discussion. Anyone can give the presentation and you can choose to participate in the discussion or just listen. There’s never any pressure to do anything. So far, we’ve discussed topics such as self-esteem, exposure therapy, mindfulness, and we’ve even gotten into the ancient teachings of the Buddha.

It’s a fun and supportive group. It’s purely a self-help group and it’s by no means a substitute for therapy. None of us are professional therapists. What we can provide is a sense of normalcy, though, since all of us have issues we’re trying to deal with.
