SOCIAL CONNECTION SUPPORT GROUP
Using social connection to overcome social anxiety and shyness
Many people cope with social anxiety by withdrawing from situations where they feel negatively evaluated or rejected. As a result, their lives become limited and they miss out on opportunities to build friendships and fulfill their potential.
The Path Center is offering a fortnightly support group for religious men focusing on social connection. This group provides a safe and supportive place for men to help one another, understand their struggles with anxiety and learn more about the recovery process. People in the group will have the opportunity to meet others facing similar challenges and to begin building a network of friends within a supportive community. The group is facilitated by David Port, a psychologist with many years’ experience working with clients affected by these issues.
David Port is a Psychologist who specialises in anxiety and mood-related difficulties. He uses an integrative approach, using various approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). David qualified as a Psychologist in Australia in 2003 before moving to Israel in 2006. He works in the school system and in private practice with adults, adolescents, couples and families.
This group is ongoing on Monday evenings.
