Social Confidence Center Launches New Meetup Group To Help People Build Social Confidence
(EMAILWIRE.COM, August 19, 2014 ) Portland, OR -- Dr. Aziz Gazipura, the founder of The Center For Social Confidence, recently created a Meetup group in Portland, Oregon called "Liberate Yourself." This group is designed to help anyone who is feeling shy or nervous about meeting people get support, guidance, and inspiration from others working on increasing confidence.
This Meetup was created to meet the growing demand for Social confidence and support in the United States. Millions of individuals currently suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder, which significantly reduces their ability to meet others, create thriving social lives, and build relationships.
"The big problem with Social Anxiety," said Dr. Aziz in a recent interview, "is there are many more people who are undiagnosed who struggle just as much. So many of them don't even know that they can take action to improve their cirucmstances. That's exactly what this Meetup group is designed to do."
The Meetup group is open to the general public and meets twice per month in downtown Portland, Oregon. Members are guided to discover their current social fears and limitations. They are then encouraged through games and playful "social experiments" to interact with strangers, friends, and other people in social settings.
"We learn much faster when it's fun," said Dr. Aziz. "The key is to make the social experiments playful and a chance to not take fear and rejection so seriously."
The principles used and taught in the Meetup group are based on decades of psychological research from the fields of Cognitive and Behavioral psychology. As people challenge their ideas and try new behaviors in the world, their fear decreases and their social abilities increase.
Dr. Aziz continued in his interview to say, "My favorite part is watching people who used to be very nervous meeting people all of a sudden see that there is nothing to be afraid of. They see the world is a friendly place, and then they start interacting with others in a completely different way. It's incredible to witness."
The Meetup group is available to anyone. Dr. Aziz reports he has a goal of expanding this type of Meetup to involve other cities beyond Portland, Oregon.
