The case involves Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who declined to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex-wedding reception.

In this approach, groups of research subjects are made aware of their irrational beliefs and negative thoughts about themselves, and taught ways to change their thinking. Curran, the problem is not just one of attitude or thinking patterns; rather it involves an absence of skills.

Arkowitz once overheard a young man start telling a young woman about his hernia operation within minutes of meeting.

Even when skills are not the problem, instruction and practice serve to lessen anxiety.
In the practice dating program, volunteers were randomly assigned a different volunteer partner for each of a series of six weekly dates. Arkowitz concedes that consensus about what constitutes social skills is lacking.
Men have significantly more anxiety about dating than do women, the researchers agree. Arkowitz found 37 percent of men surveyed were anxious as compared to 25 percent of the women.Dating difficulties are not only more prevalent among men, explains Dr.Arkowitz, but are also associated with other problems. Arkowitz found that men who have infrequent and uncomfortable opposite-sex relationships also have difficulties in same-sex friendships and are generally less well adjusted than frequent daters.He notes that such information is not readily accessible to research anyway.Counting the number of times a person smiles during a date is less meaningful than whether he smiles at appropriate times. Arkowitz acknowledges that studies of infrequent daters do not address such concerns as sexuality and intimacy, although problems in those areas may contribute to dating difficulties.
