     $110 Managing social anxiety following traumatic brain injury A Cognitive Behavioural Intervention Created by Janet Hodgson, Skye McDonald, Robyn Tate and Paul Gertler UNIVERSITY OF NSW, Sydney AUSTRALIA This nine-session cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) program is aimed at improving social anxiety following acquired brain injury (ABI). The program is designed to be used by clinical psychologists. It incorporates the same procedures and theoretical principles underlying CBT programs designed for use and proven to be effective with non-ABI populations. However, it has been adapted so as to minimise the impact of neuropsychological deficits characteristic of this group, including difficulties with regard to attention and concentration, memory and learning, and executive functioning. To this end it contains: frequent repetition of information, visual aids, cue cards, session summaries, audio tapes, role plays, simplified cognitive techniques (i.e., self- instructional strategies), and in-session planning for the completion of homework tasks. The manual provides step by step instructions for each of the nine sessions and handouts for in-session and out of session homework. Skill requirements: Clinical and/or Neuropsychologists Cost of $110 includes postage (within Australia), handling & GST. International customers can either purchase the manual as a PDF or pay an additional $120 for courier.
