Social Anxiety And Selective Mutism
Why Do Some People Experience Social Anxiety?
Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interactions with other people. For some, their anxiety can be so great that they struggle to speak with others and make friendships. The feelings that accompany social anxiety include anxiety, high levels of fear, nervousness, emotional instability, racing heart, blushing, excessive sweating, dry throat and mouth, vomiting, trembling, and muscle twitches.
Selective Mutism is a more extreme version of Social Anxiety Disorder. It is a complex childhood anxiety disorder characterized by a child’s inability to speak and communicate effectively in select social settings, such as school or out in public. These children are able to speak and communicate in settings where they are comfortable, secure, and relaxed (such as at home).
Why Does Social Anxiety Need Treatment?
People with social anxiety typically know that their anxiety is irrational, not based on fact, and does not make rational sense.
Nevertheless, thoughts and feelings of anxiety persist, are chronic, and can greatly impact their ability to interact with others.
Our Science-backed Solutions
No guesswork here… We get to the root cause of the issue using objective data from QEEG brain maps. It’s powerfully simple (and pain-free!). We apply sensors and collect data. This allows us to see a person’s unique brain patterns, and understand which areas have too much or too little brainwave activity that are directly impacting behavior. Once we can identify the issues, we create a care plan that addresses the brain and behavior.
No healing or learning can occur without a calm brain. That’s why we train the brain to self-regulate with brain-based tools like Neurofeedback—a non-invasive therapy that calms the brain and regulates brain function. Within the first session, it begins to train the brain to produce healthy brain waves associated with regulated thoughts, better mood, and improved focus. And it is safe, easy and creates lasting brain change. Learn more about our BrainBehaviorReset™ Program.
