The focus of this chapter is on cognitive interventions for adolescents with social anxiety disorder (SAD). The chapter identifies the important aspects of clinical assessments that inform a comprehensive cognitive intervention approach and provide a detailed description of interventions that target cognitions and/or cognitive processes. This description includes both cognitive and cognitive behavioural interventions. Finally, we will present a session-by-session outline of a psychosocial intervention for an adolescent male with SAD.
