The developers of the “Multidimensional Intervention for Social Anxiety” (MISA) program (Vicente E. Caballo and Isabel C. Salazar) are providing training for the application of this program internationally, especially in Latin American countries. At the moment, the two books of which the program is composed (see below) are published in Spanish by Piramide Publisher and will soon be published in Portuguese by the Sinopsys Publishing House (Brazil). The English version of the two books of the program is near to be finished. Those psychologists interested in receiving a workshop to learn how to use and apply the MISA program, may contact the FUNVECA Clinical Psychology Center at the e-mail address: clí
