I have to say I love technology with the way it can connect us globally.
I used to work as an IT person in New York City, and I have to say that I got to do some really cool stuff in the tech arena.
Video Therapy in Nebraska
It seems that some university therapists are catching onto the technology trend quite well, and specifically in regards to social anxiety.
Since expertise in social anxiety isn’t always locally available for people, this makes a TON of sense.
At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a group of anxiety therapists from the Anxiety Disorders Clinic are running a pilot program using videoconferencing to deliver therapy.
The idea is that there are farmers in Nebraska with social anxiety, that are too far away to come to the clinic for therapy.
Yep, farmers get social anxiety too!

You can call a number at the bottom of the article to find out more about it from the Anxiety Disorders clinic.
Video Coaching Over Skype
It’s funny actually, because I’m already coaching people for social anxiety using Skype with some great results, which I’m sure is very similar to what they’re doing.
The coaching profession tends to be a little more avant garde than the therapy profession, and video calls have been going on for years with coaching already.
So I’m glad some therapists are finally getting to this! Maybe they already have been using this, but this is the first I’ve heard of it, and certainly for social anxiety.
I wonder if they are using Skype, think I’ll email them and ask them.
If you are interested in video Skype coaching with me – check out the coaching page and you can sign up for a free evaluation session.
As of now, I still have spots available for those who are interested.
