Brief description People with social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) have a severe fear of negative evaluation, which can be extremely distressing and debilitating. The proposed randomised controlled trial will evaluate a new imagery-enhanced group treatment for SAD that exploits the powerful relationship between mental imagery and emotion. The imagery-enhanced program is expected to demonstrate larger, more rapid, and longer-lasting improvements in SAD symptoms compared to existing best practice treatment.
