Clinical Group Programs 2024

Social Anxiety Programs for Students in 2024

During first semester in 2024 there will be two Social Anxiety Group Programs and another group program targeting students with academic performance anxiety called ‘Performing at your Peak at Uni’.

Social Anxiety Group Program (students only)

Social anxiety involves significant fear or avoidance of one or more social situations. Social anxiety is a prevalent issue and can be disruptive to day-to-day life.

This is a cognitive behavioural program that’s designed to treat social anxiety.

The sessions will be facilitated by Dr Sophia Gozzi, Clinical Psychologist.

The program will run for eight sessions on Wednesdays, from 13 March until 8 May (excluding 3 April)

Two options are available at Clayton:

Performing at Your Peak at Uni (students only)

Many students experience significant anxiety in academic performance situations and excessively worry about being judged negatively.

This can often lead to avoidance of performance situations such as contributing in tutorials, asking a lecturer a question, as well as attending team meetings, networking events and job interviews.

Productivity can also be hampered when anxiety leads to delays in submitting assignments or excessive time spent perfecting documents. In some instances, tasks are not avoided but students spend considerable time worrying about the upcoming task or ruminating about it afterwards.

This is a cognitive behavioural program that’s designed to target academic and career performance anxiety:

  • The sessions will be facilitated by Dr Sophia Gozzi and Dr Emily Prytula, Clinical Psychologists
  • The program will run for eight sessions on Mondays, from 18 March until 13 May (excluding 1 April), from 11am – 1pm
  • Groups comprise of a maximum of 10 participants
  • This program is open only to Monash students, and is free of charge.
