Youper is the first app for overcoming social anxiety that uses an interactive platform based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the best intervention for the initial treatment of social anxiety*.
Research has shown that individuals continue to see declines in their social anxiety one year after completing CBT and maintain those gains ten years later**.
Researchers from the University of Bern in Switzerland have shown that techniques delivered via the Internet are effective to reduce symptoms of social anxiety***.
