The leading UK Social Anxiety Research Team is part of OxCadat
It is lead by Professor David M Clark of the “Clark and Wells CBT Model”, alongside Professor Anke Ehlers and Research Clinical Psychologist Dr Emma Warnock-Parkes

The OxCadat team have also developed the OxCADAT Resources website, which include videos intended to aid therapists treating clients using the specialised cognitive therapies developed from the Clark and Wells model of social anxiety disorder.

From their website:

We work to improve understanding of the development and maintenance of anxiety disorders and stress-related disorders to develop more effective and efficient psychological therapies. Past successes of the Centre’s research team, which is led by Professor David M Clark and Professor Anke Ehlers, include developing specialised forms of cognitive therapy that are now recommended by NICE as first line treatments for panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder. We are also working on making delivery of the treatments more efficient through blended therapy and digital delivery.

Our Centre works to improve the understanding and treatment of anxiety disorders. We currently focus on Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia). We support a closely integrated programme of psychopathology studies, treatment development work and randomized controlled trials. We work closely with the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma in London, founded by Professors Clark, Ehlers and Salkovskis in 2000.
