Imagery Rescripting for Social Anxiety Disorder: Theory, Evidence, and, Clinical Application

Are you interested in understanding how you can reduce social anxiety by working directly with trauma-based imagery? Do you want to learn more about the role of socially traumatic experiences in the development of social anxiety?

Social anxiety disorder is a debilitating anxiety disorder that is often rooted in socially traumatic experiences and is subsequently maintained by negative imagery of the self. Therefore, imagery-based trauma processing interventions for reducing social anxiety symptoms has become a focus of recent research. This includes imagery rescripting, which aims to alter negative meanings associated with distressing autobiographical memories.

Dr Alice Norton will present the theoretical background and empirical evidence for using imagery rescripting with socially anxious clients, as well as how to undertake this work in clinical practice.

Alice has taught at the University of Sydney for several years, has presented at national and international psychology conferences, and has published broadly in peer-reviewed academic journals in the area of anxiety disorders. Currently, in addition to her research related work, Alice also supervises clinical research students, is involved in the training and supervision of clinical interns and works in private practice.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.
