The SAI Treatment Group.
8 New Cabra Road | Co. Dublin
The programme has been offered offered since November 1998. We are currently in the process of progressing our service into an independent charitable institute.
The programme is held every Wednesday & Thursday evening between 6pm and 8.45pm – the venue from Feb 2016 will be in our new offices as 8 New Cabra Road, Phibsborough, Dublin 7.
The programme, which largely adopts a cognitive behavioural model, is conducted over fourteen weeks. While this may seem a long time most of our participants argue that passes almost too quickly! Any interested person might be well advised to do an Internet search of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in order to get a better understanding of the principles that form the bedrock of our programme.
Moreover, included in this website is a forum. Ex-participants mainly use this forum as a means of keeping in touch, but also as a source of support and encouragement. Potential applicants can access this forum and address any of their concerns or question about our programme to users of this forum that have actually been through our programme.
Another source of information for potential participants is the book ‘Overcoming Social Anxiety & Shyness’ by Gillian Butler (Robinson Publishers). This book is employed as a basic reader for all participants and tends to supplement the work we do.
