Debilitating symptoms include panic attacks, fear of blushing (Erythrophobia), fear of sweating (hyper-hidrosis, voice freeze (selective mutism), and dissociation. These symptoms are driven by obsessive worry and perfectionism. 

This strategy can be utilized for social workers who experience this challenge. It also can be taught to their clients.

A = action (behavior) 
T = thinking (cognition) 
E = emotion
