If by SP, do you mean "social phobia"? If so, now it is usually called social anxiety disorder, or SAD.

So, if you are talking about SAD, does CBT help? Heck, YES!!! Study after study has shown the efficacy of CBT, especially among those motivated to get well who will do the work required.

Meds help control symptoms, but CBT helps you change the negative pathways in your brain that you have spent years grinding in. But like AA for alcholholics, you have to be ready.

Try asking your question on the "Psycho-Babble Psycholgy" board where they talk about therapies and try an archive search for CBT.

All the best!!!
