Social Anxiety Disorder in Teens
Gaining and keeping friendships is an essential part of being a teenager. They bring happiness, provide support in times of need and help you feel understood in a way adults can’t. But making friends isn’t always easy.
Social anxiety disorder makes it difficult to meet new people because you’re constantly in fear of being embarrassed or judged by others. But the good news is that Lightfully Teen is here to help you work through that anxiety and learn skills needed to make friends now that will last a lifetime.
How Can Lightfully Teen Help Social Anxiety Disorder?
Social anxiety disorder can keep you from making meaningful connections, which is why it’s important to look at your mental health from every angle to determine the root of your anxiety. Our process-based therapy can help determine what your current needs are so that you can work toward what you want to achieve in the future.
Process-based therapy, or PBT, allows us to form a personalized treatment plan that helps to treat your entire well-being, not just your diagnosis. Because you’re more than just your social anxiety disorder.
PBT uses integrated interventions, such as values clarification and motivational enhancement, to show measurable results that will help you progress on your mental health journey. The interventions stem from four core processes that contribute to your social anxiety disorder:
- Difficulty with emotions
- Difficulty with thoughts
- Difficulty with behaviors
- Difficulty with relationships

Process-based therapy can help your social anxiety disorder in our three levels of care: Residential Treatment, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), also called our Day Treatment Program.
