Thanks for the feed-back - it's always appreciated ! Sounds like they're both doing really well, except for the hiccough about the social phobia, Sounds like your husband is making the commonly msitaken assumption about being too old to learn. I'm significantly older than him, and I'm still learning every day.
Remind him that it was difficult for him, at first, to believe that his depression, etc., could be helped and yet it has been dramatically improved. So it will be with the social phobia, if he allows this to happen. Remember too, both of you, that social phobia is a nastier version of shyness, so it encourages him to feel he might look foolish in front of other people, whereas the sessions would, on the contrary, enable him to recognize that he does not look foolish in frobnt of others, and that he could handle this even if it did happen
