All are welcome to attend this talk to be delivered to the EP TOPIC Research Group.
Dr Miers will present results from a micro-trial study into the effectiveness of individual treatment components for social anxiety in children. She will then present a new and innovative brief intervention (using positive feedback from age peers to prevent and reduce social anxiety in early adolescents) plus findings from two pilot studies (integrating the effects of positive feedback on emotion, cognitive and physiological components of social anxiety). The talk will finish with a hypothesised Reinforcement Model of Peer Feedback in Adolescence to Reduce Social Anxiety and Enhance Social Wellbeing.
