This final chapter focuses on assessment of progress, relapse prevention, and termination. After approximately 15 sessions of treatment for the typical client with moderately severe symptoms, it is time to stop and assess progress. Treatment for social anxiety may continue with the same interventions, additional interventions may be added, all treatment may end, or treatment may shift to focus on other issues. Assessment of progress involves reviewing the progress checklist shown at the beginning of chapter 13 in the Client Workbook and re-rating the Fear and Avoidance Hierarchy. It is normal for some social anxiety to remain, but the avoidance ratings should be dramatically reduced.
