In this program, famed psychologists and founder of cognitive therapy Dr. Aaron Beck describes his theory of cognitive therapy and outlines his approach for the assessment and treatment of social anxiety. Using charts and outlines, he explains such elements of his theory and approach as the vicious cycle of the psychosocial threat, the typical sequence in public exposure situations, the steps of formulating a case, and the techniques of cognitive therapy. Beck then demonstrates how his theory is applied in a therapeutic approach with "Mark," whose problems with procrastination stem primarily from his fear of being evaluated by others.
